Recently established through the Miami Foundation, The Bess Route Foundation is committed to giving back to the community by shaping positive lifestyles for underprivileged children and providing scholarship funds for families in need.

Upon achieving his goal, he committed himself to recruiting all available resources to helping those less fortunate choose the right path.
