Athletes In Action

AFH University September Roundup

Developed in 2013, our AFH University program helps college athletes explore leadership, life skill development, advocacy, their role in the community, and how to discover their philanthropic passions. 

Our AFH University student-athletes are falling in love with community service this September! This past month, student-athletes went above and beyond the call of service as they made a positive impact in their communities.

Athletes from Southern University and LSU visited children’s hospitals, engaged in community events, and more!


Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital

On September 6, LSU Cheer visited OLOL Children’s Hospital and did what they do best! They brought cheer and great energy to patients.

The cheerleaders visited rooms, showed off their moves, and led an exciting game of trivia in the activity room.

Southern University

St. Vincent de Paul

On Thursday, September 7, Southern men’s basketball supported individuals facing food insecurity in Baton Rouge by packing over 100 “Bags of Hope” for guests at St.Vincent de Paul.

Before Southern softball could kick off their season, they wanted a special touch from the artists at OLOL Children’s Hospital.

Patients and student-athletes spent the afternoon painting cleats that the Southern Lady Jags will be wearing during their 2024 season.

Healthier Families, Better Communities Expo

On September 23, Southern baseball volunteered at the Healthier Families, Better Communities Expo hosted by the City of Baker and The Bridge Agency. The expo had various organizations on site sharing valuable resources including a kids zone.

Student-athletes assisted with the children’s activities as well as event logistics such as set up and registration.

To close out the month of service, on the 27th Harold Rhodes III of Southern football visited OLOL Children’s Hospital to facilitate activity time and visit rooms to cheer up patients.

As the fall semester kicks off our student-athletes couldn’t be more excited for another great semester of service! We couldn’t be more proud of their continued dedication to serving their communities and are excited to see all of the good they accomplish together this semester.
