Charles Haley, a five-ring Super Bowl winner and member of the NFL Hall of Fame, confirmed Tuesday that he will try to make an impact by improving the education of Mexican children with Tackle Tomorrow, the foundation of which he chairs.
former defender said at a press conference:
This is a battle we will win on both sides, in Mexico and the United States, as we need to close the gap in education and perspectives for minorities.
Haley was in Mexico to announce his foundation’s alliance with Solmar Golf Links Los Cabos, based in Cabo San Lucas, a resort town on the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula.
This is a great opportunity to bring my foundation to Los Cabos and the Mexican people. In the United States, we support children in 60% of Hispanic families, most of whom don’t even speak English, and we want to bring our programs to Mexico.
Haley, 59, has been inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2015. He won Super Bowls XXIII and XXIV with the San Francisco 49ers, a team he played with from 1986 to 1991 and left in 1999. Dallas Cowboys played from 1992 to 1996 and won the XXVII, XXVIII, and XXX Editions of the NFL Title Game.
I am happy that the foundation is helping to close the education gap. In the United States, we talk about social justice, we have activities with the police because we want to act as a link for police departments to serve minorities and not see them as a threat.
haley He pointed to the goal of bringing Tackle Tomorrow to Mexico.
My goal is to change the way the judiciary looks at minorities, it’s not about being black or white, it’s about allowing those who have an education to progress. We arrived in Mexico to make our mark through various events for children.
The event that marks the start of operations for this alliance is the March 31 golf tournament at Solmar Golf Links Cabo San Lucas, which will feature NFL legends such as Joe Montana, Ronnie Lott and Troy Aikman.
Rodrigo Esponda, director of Los Cabos Tourism Trust, and Roberto González, president of the 360 platform, were also present at the announcement of this partnership.
