SÃO PAULO, Brazil – E..J. Viso braced himself in mock surprise as a group of youngsters bounded into the KV Racing Technology garage area at the Anhembi circuit.
The mid-afternoon meet and greet with local children from Associação Beneficiente Betsaida – a Casa Herbalife program sponsored by the Herbalife Family Foundation – included lighthearted rapport with the Venezuelan driver of the No. 5 CITGO|PDVSA KV Racing Technology car, a tour and, of course, autographs.
As a bonus, KV Racing Technology teammates Rubens Barrichello and Tony Kanaan exited a meeting in time for photos with the group.
The Herbalife Family Foundation seeks to improve children's lives around the world by helping organizations provide healthy nutrition to at-risk children. Associação Beneficiente Betsaida, a safe haven where underserved youth are empowered to take ownership and direction of their lives, is among four Casa Herbalife programs in Brazil.
“Not only do I believe they have the best nutrition products, they focus their energy on helping young kids around the world,” said Viso, who’s been using the company’s performance nutrition products for 13 years. “It’s great to share some time with these kids, show them around and see them smile.”
