Aliv comes on board as Freedom Farm opens season
Written by admin on April 23, 2018
Aliv is excited to have partnered yet again with the Freedom Farm Baseball League to kick of its 2018 season. The new season got underway on Saturday. The action-packed day kicked off with a church service held at Holy Cross Anglican Church followed by a march from Aliv’s headquarters to the Freedom Farm baseball fields for the opening ceremony and a few games.
Aliv Events and Sponsorship Coordinator Jayme Pinder said Aliv believes in all things service oriented in the community, especially for the youth of The Commonwealth of The Bahamas and Freedom Farm plays an integral role in that.
“At the very core of who where are at Aliv and what we do is a desire to give back. Freedom Farm is always so grateful for our sponsorship but truly Aliv is so thankful for the opportunity to give back to the community. We wish Freedom Farm the very best and look forward to sponsoring them in the years to come.”
Founder and president of the Freedom Farm Baseball League Greg Burrows Sr. said the league was birthed from spending time playing the sport with his son every Saturday. At one point the number of young boys grew and he decided to do something constructive with the opportunity which led him to where he is today.
“Our focus at Freedom Farm is higher education through the sport of baseball knowing that baseball can change lives and it has been changing lives. We have dozens who have gone through U.S colleges and the number is growing with 14 young men in professional baseball. Freedom Farm is just an oiled machine going in the right direction and we thank Aliv, especially because we’ve never had a corporate sponsor come on board and satisfy our financial needs as well as Aliv has done.”
Freedom Farm is a non-profit baseball organization consisting of 42 teams, which focusses not only on developing excellent baseball skills, but also on building character, teaching unity through teamwork, and encouraging the pursuit of higher education. The league develops players, both male and female, between the ages of four to 18, from all over The Bahamas.
