USTAF’s Kendra Chambers is this week’s Community Hero!
Kendra Chambers of USA Track & Field epitomizes the mission of Athletes for Hope. Even though she’s full time professional athlete, Kendra still finds the time to use her platform to advance the causes she cares about through AFH campaigns, initiatives and programs.
Over the past 5+ years, Kendra has consistently volunteered her time with schools from across the country through our AFH Fit Program. She’s also worked with us to raise awareness about food insecurity, COVID-19 vaccine access, voting rights, and mental health (just to name a few!) through social media campaigns. Kendra has also filmed videos sending good wishes to children in hospitals and participated in food bank visits in Texas. Outside of her work with us, she recently hosted a track and field clinic in her hometown of El Paso, TX at her high school alma mater.
“[AFH] makes doing what I love – which is inspiring kids by spreading my story – so much easier on me. They have made all of my school visits much more rewarding and meaningful because I get to focus on being an elite athlete while they help me get connected with future generations!”Kendra Chambers
Kendra is one of our most committed AFH members and it is no wonder she was selected the AFH Member of the Year in 2020. What’s most impressive about Kendra is that she accomplishes all of the great work in the community with a smile on her face and giving spirit. We could not be more proud to work with athletes like Kendra.
