Ammerman Making Dreams Come True On and Off The Collegiate Ice

Ammerman Making Dreams Come True On and Off The Collegiate Ice
BY JOE FAVORITO
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

With all the issues toed to sport today, from Deflate Gate to the wreck of a season the Knicks are having, it is nice to find a unique voice, a refreshing reminder of what good can come from sport, and how one can take the gifts given them to “Pay It Forward,” a trait that brands, and business partners love attaching themselves to.

Such is the case with Jersey native and University of Wisconsin star student-athlete Brittany Ammerman. During the summer of 2013, she took a month-long trip to Africa during the offseason with Health by Motorbike, an organization dedicated to supplying health camps to women. From that sprung something even more remarkable for the Pre-Med major and Badgers star, she has been on a mission to help and empower women in seven remote Kenyan villages, doing it with education about nutrition and health care, and with the launch of a women’s soccer league. The league is called Nikumbuke, which means “Remember me” in Swahili.
