Roberto Enrique Clemente Walker is one of the greatest athletes and humanitarians of the 20th century.
For the people of Puerto Rico he is one of the ultimate symbols of national pride, not just for the records he set but for the lives he touched with his activism and with the simple power of watching someone from your community achieve excellence without compromising their character.
Three years after his first World Series win, Roberto Clemente married the love of his life, a humble bank secretary named Vera Cristina Zabala. She’s the strikingly beautiful woman seen at his side in hundreds of photos from that era, and she was his rock for the remainder of his career and life. Join us in celebrating this remarkable woman and learn about her vision for the Foundation.
