The Clemente Community Challenge, developed exclusively for students like you in grades 6-8, is based on the life and achievements of Roberto Clemente, one of the greatest athletes and humanitarians of the 20th century. In addition to his achievements on the field as a professional baseball player, Clemente devoted much of his life to charitable causes.

After Clemente’s death in a plane crash in 1972, his family established the Roberto Clemente Foundation. The Foundation honors the legacy of supporting those in need through a wide range of service projects, with a mission of Building Nations of Good. Its newest program is one that you and your classmates can participate in—the Clemente Community Challenge.
