The Correa Family Foundation is a nonprofit 501c3 organization founded by Carlos Correa and his family to provide support to childhood cancer patients and their families. We strongly believe that childhood is the greatest treasure of society and the foundation of our future. Therefore, we aim to provide transformative experiences and improve the quality of life of children suffering from cancer and honor them as our real heroes.
As part of our mission, during special circumstances we also commit to support communities affected by natural disasters such as hurricanes, flooding, earthquakes, and most recently the COVID-19 pandemic.
Childhood cancer support
Gold Shoes Initiative
Childhood Cancer Awareness is represented by the color gold, as it symbolizes how precious children are and the resiliency of our childhood cancer heroes.
Hero of the Month
Honoring a selected group of children and adolescents who exemplify bravery, hope, and outstanding courage to overcome life’s most difficult challenges.
Joy and love to hospitals
A long-standing tradition of our Foundation is to bring love and laughter to children’s hospitals.
OTHER HUMANITARIAN EFFORTS
COVID-19 Pandemic, 2020
Due to the unprecedented coronavirus crisis, we created an initiative along with JAK Entertainment to call on a selected group of Puerto Rican artists and professional athletes to help during the pandemic.
In early 2020, Puerto Rico suffered its strongest earthquake in over 100 years followed by an unrelenting sequence of earthquakes. Hundreds of families were left homeless and in need of essential supplies.
Hurricane Florence, 2018
Hurricane Florence devastated North Carolina and left thousands homeless. Hence, we decided to visit these communities and provided 2 full days of free baseball clinics for children living in underserved communities.
