Hometown Hero Spotlight: Antoinette Hemphill


Each year Blue Hills Bank asks members of the community to nominate local individuals and organizations that have had major impacts on their communities. The top 12 heroes are selected by a committee and featured in the following year’s Hometown Hero Calendar.


Hometown Hero Antoinette Hemphill


December 2017 Hometown Hero

Antoinette Hemphill has led scores of women down the path to better mental and physical health through her “Mama Beast” workout program that puts moms (and their children) on their feet and in the streets exercising their hearts and minds. Antoinette fosters a sense of community centered on healthy attitudes and is the first to help someone in need, donate a service, or cheer on a friend. A mother of three, an entrepreneur, and a tireless volunteer in the community, Antoinette’s positivity is infectious and inspirational.


Each Hometown Hero is awarded $1,000 toward a charity of their choice. Antoinette is sending her $1,000 donation from the Blue Hills Bank Foundation to the Boston Children’s Hospital Tighe’s SIDS fundraiser and Cradles to Crayons.


Thank you, Antoinette, for your continued dedication to helping women and families in the community.
