The foundation provided clean water and medical facilities to the areas.

We were told this ball went 550 feet and I see no reason to think it did not.

Last February Adam Wainwright and Luke Weaver along with Wainwright’s foundation, Big League Impact, took a trip to Haiti. Donations to Big League Impact went towards a new water system in the Haitian city of Balan. As of May 25, 2017 that system had provided clean water to over 6,000 people.

Big League Impact reached out to Viva El Birdos a few weeks ago about their next trip to Haiti and the Dominican Republic. Here are some photos from that trip!

The pouring rain could not stop Adam Wainwright from speaking to some young baseball players in the Dominican Republic.

Remember that water system from Wainwright’s visit back in 2017? Here it is now, providing clean drinking water to thousands each day!

In addition to the water system, Big League Impact also helped fund a medical clinic in Haiti. According to Big League Impact it serves 60-100 people per day.

The clinic in Haiti Big League Impact helped fund (thanks to contributions from donors).
