THIS IS THE GET IN THE GAME PODCAST
WITH SCOTT LINEBRINK
Adam LaRoche played 12 seasons in the major leagues, hitting 255 career home runs and nearly 1,500 career hits. During his career, though, he was just as passionate about serving others, particularly those in the military. That has remained in his retired life, as well as a general heart for serving. That’s how he and Scott Linebrink connected years ago and it’s a big part of their friendship still today.
LaRoche’s foundation, the E3 Foundation, has a mission to join in the fight against human trafficking, as well as serving combat war veterans. Recently, LaRoche and his foundation aided soldiers who were involved in the United States pulling out of Afghanistan. Most recently, he’s been working with various organizations in Ukraine needing medical supplies during the current war with Russia. After hearing that there was a need for water, Linebrink and Water Mission teamed up with the E3 Foundation to help supply water to a Ukrainian city.
Water Mission is one of the only nonprofits producing safe water in multiple cities in Ukraine. It is also distributing hygiene kits to help people stay healthy. LaRoche has offered to match all gifts to Water Mission’s Ukraine response, up to $125,000, through the E3 Foundation.
