“For his commitment and perseverance, Tim Challen truly personifies the credit union mission of ‘people helping people,’” Hood said. “After being shot by armed robbers in Nairobi, Africa, while working to open and establish a UNFCU office in East Africa, Mr. Challen made the decision to address the crime using positive change. “Through courage and dedication to a vision of a brighter future for the citizens of East Africa, Challen turned his vision into reality as founder of the Kilimanjaro Initiative,” Hood added. Using the positive impact of sports on youth and society, the Kilimanjaro Initiative provides the youth of East Africa with opportunities to take a constructive role in their communities. UNFCU, based in New York, has $2.6 billion in assets.
