In 1999 I had an experience that changed my life. Former Philly
teammates Kevin Sefcik, Rico Brogna, and I visited children on
the cancer floor of The Temple Children’s Hospital in Philadelphia.
Although these children were terminal, we were not greeted with
despair and illness. We were greeted with smiles and appreciation…
The Enis Furley Foundation is a non-profit organization created by Scott Rolen, of the Cincinnati Reds. In 1999, Scott had a vision to brighten the lives of children and their families who are dealing with an illness, hardship, or other special needs. The E5 Foundation works to achieve this goal through partnerships and our own Camp Emma Lou with our three core programs: Family Retreat Weekends, T.E.A.M Fieldtrips, and the Hot Corner Kids.
Ultimately, our goals are quite simple and focused… we want to make children smile!
