Teens Turning Green

A former high school classmate of mine, and current professional beach volleyball player, Brittany Hochevar, is one of six AVP pros participating in the Athletes for Hope charity campaign.
Six top AVP athletes are stepping up to champion a charitable cause as part of Athletes for Hope’s ongoing “Who Gives?” campaign. An online fundraising challenge entitled “Racing for a Cause” is a virtual race for charity representing a larger call to action for athletes around the world to show support for causes they are most passionate about. 
(Brittany Hochevar) will compete with 60 other professional athletes spanning various sports and levels of play. Steve Nash, Lance Armstrong, Muhammad Ali, Jeff Gordon, Mia Hamm and Tony Hawk are among other athletes participating in the fundraising challenge.
Brittany's charity of choice is the "Teens Turning Green" campaign which "is a teen led campaign to inspire, inform and empower teens to eliminate toxic exposures from their daily lives, schools, and communities."
