Kaelin Marquez TEAMHERO Athlete

#TeamHERO athletes encompass everything it means to be a true HERO. They are athletes on the field, scholars in the classroom, and volunteers in the community. 

On May 15th we met up with three best friends and gymnasts at the beautiful San Jose Rose Garden. Kaelin, Alana, and Emily laughed and cracked jokes as we took their photos and learned more about their hopes and dreams. Our first feature highlights Kaelin Marquez. As you'll see from her photos, Kaelin's smile is contagious. She has big goals and we're excited to share her story with you. Enjoy Kaelin's feature and congratulate her on HERO's Facebook page!
