AFH Trains Houston Area Athletes

AFH Trains Houston Area Athletes

AFH visited the Houston Dash, Houston’s pro women’s soccer team, and the Houston Scrapyard Dawgs, the area’s professional softball team, to present a 1.0 workshop. The teams were very responsive to our message about the importance of giving back to the community and individual members signed up to become part of AFH. Outreach has already started with the teams and they’ve been very responsive. The Dawgs and the Dash will work with Active Schools and Starlight Hospitals among other connections with non-profits from the Houston area. We look forward to working with the teams as a whole and individual members in the near future.

Southern University Softball Connection with Special Olympics

2016 is off to a fast start with AFH-U at Southern University (SU). Last week the Women’s Softball team selected the Special Olympics as their team connection partner. Staying in line with the Causeway the team connected with over 20 Special Olympics athletes by spending the day bowling! The team had such a good time that they would love to continue their relationship with the Special Olympics in the coming months. As part of this commitment from the Softball team, the Special Olympics will choose an athlete each game to throw out the first pitch at each SU home game this season.
