The purpose of the Junior Ambassadors is to advise the AFF Board of Directors in matters that increase awareness of AFF’s mission and recruit volunteers among school-aged youth, raise funds, and develop future leaders.

Hi! My name is Faith Bowden and I’m and incoming junior at Kingwood High School. I am passionate about mental health and plan to pursue medicine in the future! I like to stay busy and involved in a few different clubs and organizations. However, being an AFF Ambassador is especially important to me. I am proud to be a part of this nonprofit because we not only help to fund research, but also help individual families affected by childhood cancer.
Hi, I’m James Higbie and I am a freshmen at KHS. I am in the marching band, play lacrosse and I am an avid fisherman. My family and I have participated in Addi’s Faith events since I was 4 years old and I joined the Ambassadors when I was in 7th grade. I love working with other students to plan fun events, do service projects and help spread the word about Addi’s Faith Foundation. But most of all, I love that as an Ambassador I am helping support kids with cancer and making their days a little brighter.
Hi my name is Lily Bowden. I’m 13 years old and an 8th grader at Riverwood Middle School. I enjoy volleyball, volunteering at the Village Learning Center, playing with my dog Eddie, and hanging out with my friends and family! My family has been involved with Addi’s Faith Foundation for as long as I can remember. I’m passionate about finding a cure for childhood cancer and grateful to be a part of such an amazing organization.
Hello my name is Lane Limbaugh and I am a sophomore at Kingwood high school. A few hobbies of mine are swimming, reading, basketball, and competing in triathlons. Joining AFF Ambassadors was an amazing decision last year because it is a great opportunity to volunteer and help raise money towards pediatric cancer research and relief for families affected. There are also many fun events throughout the year to help raise awareness for this awesome cause. I think that anyone interested in volunteering for a cause should consider being a part of Addi’s Faith Foundation!
Former Junior Ambassadors
My name is Lauren Abler and I am going to be a junior at Kingwood High school the 2019-2020 school year. I am a starting defender on the Kingwood varsity soccer team. I’m also apart of many clubs and organizations such as NHS, HOSA, Beta club and Spanish Honor Society. I also play club soccer for Challenge. This will be my second year with Addis Faith Junior Ambassadors. Last year I was VP of the ambassadors and this year I am VP of Growth and Development.
I am involved in AFF because, although I have not experienced it first hand, I have seen how pediatric cancer can affect families and impact multiple lives. It is heart breaking to see, but I believe AFF is contributing greatly to finding a cure. Although we are not adults, there are still multiple ways us teens can spread awareness and raise money for pediatric cancer.
My name is Sydney Ferris and I’m 17 years old. I got to Kingwood High school and am involved in a few clubs and organizations. I love to travel and I’m my happiest when I’m at the beach :))
I’ve been involved with Addis Faith Foundation from the start because my parents were very close to Amber and Tony whenever Addi was diagnosed. Additionally, My older sister Mandi had a brain tumor when she was 5, so I’ve seen first-hand the effects childhood cancer can have on families. Because of this I’ve wanted to be involved in an organization to help kids and families in need and AFF is the perfect place for doing just that!
