Ballardite talks about volunteering in South Africa

Ballard High School grad Chris Kaimmer spent the past year in Mtubatuba, South Africa volunteering with Grassroots Soccer, a non-profit that uses soccer-based activities to teach South African kids about HIV/AIDS. Tonight he’s sharing his story.

We wrote about Kaimmer this past spring because of his work to get used Ballard soccer gear to his South African team. “Given how much I love my home neighborhood, I can’t tell you how much it warms my heart to see little Zulu kids in deep, rural South Africa running around playing soccer in Ballard soccer jerseys,” Kaimmer told us in May.

Tonight at 6 p.m., Kaimmer is giving a one-hour presentation on his year in South Africa. You can hear about his adventures in the meeting room at the Ballard Library (5614 22nd Ave NW).
