UNC student named People Magazine’s Hero of the Year

Senior Gabe Whaley was named People Magazine’s Reader’s Choice Hero of the Year.

Whaley is the founder and president of Kicking4Hunger — a summer soccer camp for children that requires food donations for admission.

Each camper can attend the camp free of charge if the player brings one can of food for every day they attend the summer camp.

Whaley founded the camp in 2006 and it has expanded in size and donations collections.
