Since 2012, Project Beisbol has benefited more than 4,850 children in the region.
Today, they join forces by providing baseball t shirts to kids in Quinamayo, Valle del Cauca, Colombia, a low-income town with a historic passion and talent for baseball. Local community leaders have been training and developing baseball and softball players for years with the support of Project Beisbol and the region’s sports institute “Indervalle.” This donation opens the door to international community collaboration and cultural exchange, allowing Project Béisbol to effectively carry out its mission and participate in building stronger communities in the region. Project Beisbol President and Founder, Justin Halladay, commented, “We are very grateful for the beautiful t-shirts donated and proud of our strong relationship with Course of Action. I can tell you first-hand the powerful impact these donations will have on the kids and community.
These boys and girls have the drive, the talent and support from local coaches. The only thing missing is more equipment, uniform and logistics support. We welcome the local teams, companies and individuals in the Tampa Bay area to join our cause. Thank you Course of Action!”
