How we got started

As a professional baseball player, I’ve had the opportunity to meet some truly incredible people who have factored heavily in my success and helped to shape my character, both on and off the field. Chief among them, my former teammate, Adam Wainwright has had an especially significant impact on my life. Not only is Adam a great example of what it means to be a good father and husband, he also demonstrates how giving back can enrich your life every bit as much as those you serve.

It was in this spirit that my wife and I recently joined Adam and his wife on a mission trip to Haiti where the idea of Brace for Impact was born. We’re proud to be teaming with Pittsburgh Kids Foundation to raise money for some of the amazing kids we met there. Through this initiative, it’s my goal to be able to have as much of an impact on the lives of others as Adam’s had on mine.
