Athletes for Hope University Teams Help Flood Victims in Baton Rouge

Athletes for Hope University Teams Help Flood Victims in Baton Rouge

Over 600 varsity college athletes who are part of the Athletes for Hope University program have been impacted by the flooding in Baton Rouge, LA. A large group of these athletes have spent considerable time giving back to those in need in the Baton Rouge community.

“We are really grateful for the support that this community shows to our team and all of LSU Athletics. We are more than happy to give back in any way possible and look forward to continue helping rebuild the community in the near future”- Kelly Quinn, LSU Volleyball.

Below are a few examples of the tremendous work that AFH U teams have done in the Baton Rouge community over the past few days:

AFH U: Louisiana Update

AFH University kicked off the month of March by conducting 1.5 workshops with teams from Louisiana State University (LSU) and Southern University (SU).  Student athletes revisited the core values shared in the 1.0 workshop, participated in physical activity training led by the World Fit for Kids team, chose team leaders, and began the connection process. All teams have chosen their connection and are looking forward to participating this semester.

Teams and Connection Partners for this year:

LSU Baseball visited Key Academy, a school for children with dyslexia, in February. Three players, along with the legendary Skip Bertman, engaged the children in the importance of physical education and the basic techniques of baseball.  Thanks to the players and to Skip for meeting with the kids.
