LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Herbalife Family Foundation (HFF) announced today that it has awarded its 2016 Global Humanitarian Award to Sara Alfaro, independent Herbalife member from Mexico, at Herbalife’s annual Honors event in Cancun, Mexico.
Ms. Alfaro was recognized for the outstanding support she extends to a variety of philanthropic projects including generous support of HFF and its flagship Casa Herbalife Program.
HFF awards the Humanitarian Award honor to independent Herbalife members who exemplify the foundation’s mission and, through outstanding involvement and dedication, have made a significant contribution to changing lives by providing access to good nutrition and a healthy active lifestyle.
Over the past 23 years as an independent Herbalife member, Ms. Alfaro has inspired her peers, family and friends through her dedication and passion for improving the lives of those in need. She spends time providing for economically-challenged children by donating food and supplies and is also dedicated to raising social awareness of the needs of children at risk of homelessness. She is also continually recognized for being a top donor to the Casa Herbalife Programs in Mexico and worldwide.
“It is my great pleasure to present Sara with the 2016 Humanitarian Award,” said Robyn M. Browning, executive director of the Herbalife Family Foundation. “Her extraordinary commitment and dedication to children in need exemplify the mission of HFF and inspires others to lend their support.”
