Foundation 4Life is teaming up with Major League Baseball player Edgar Renterìa to help give back to the community of Barranquilla, Colombia.
Renteria, who is a native of Colombia, started the Team Renterìa Baseball Academy to educate kids on social risks in their community while providing a positive and rewarding sporting environment. His efforts have helped keep countless kids out of drugs and off the streets by teaching them how to a better person and athlete. They believe that all children deserve the opportunity to reach for their dreams and achieve their full potential.
With Foundation 4Life’s donation of $25,000 USD, the Team Renterìa Baseball Academy will be able to provide every child with an experienced coach and instructor that will help teach them the skills they need to succeed both on and off the field.
“We launched the distributor-driven Foundation to address the needs of communities wherever 4Life distributors conduct business around the world,” said Trent Tenney, Senior VP Marketing.“The Team Renterìa Baseball Academy serves more than four hundred kids throughout the community. It’s a worthy cause and honorable association.”
Oscar Villabona, 4Life General Manager, Colombia, presented the donation on behalf of 4Life global distributors and executives alike to Team Renterìa’s Jon Murillo. Platinum International Diamond Angel Molina was onsite for the event, along with International Diamonds Joel Rivera (USA), Arlette Molina (Colombia) and Patricia Farelo (Colombia).
