Damar Hamlin, NFL player, entrepreneur and philanthropist
Damar Hamlin is an NFL player, entrepreneur and philanthropist. Hamlin, a safety for the Buffalo Bills, suffered a cardiac arrest during a Monday Night Football game on January 2 and received emergency medical care which led to his remarkable recovery. Hamlin will share his incredible journey and inspire us with his passion to stand up for those who need it the most.
Before he joined the NFL, Hamlin played footbal at the University of Pittsburgh. While still in school, Hamlin launched his popular Chasing M’s clothing brand – which “tells the story of your come up through clothing and puts a community of like-minded people behind you to help achieve the life you want.” While expanding his portfolio as a fashion entrepreneur, he created The Chasing M’s Foundation – a vehicle to bring lasting impact to his community supporting toy drives, back-to-school drives, kids’ camps, and more.
