‘Making a positive and long lasting impact in the lives of children’ is the mission of The Hudson Family Foundation. It was started by Atlanta Braves baseball player Tim Hudson and his wife Kim.

On November 10 Kim Hudson will speak at Samford University’s convocation about her family’s foundation and how faith made it all possible.

Convocation will start at 10 a.m. and will be held on campus at Reid Chapel.

Hudson is a graduate of Samford’s Cumberland School of law. The Hudson’s have been active in several charitable organizations, but their passion for children in need prompted them to form The Hudson Family Foundation in June of 2009.
