Throughout his career, Rolen took advantage of his platform to make a difference in the lives of others, visiting sick children in the hospital and providing children and their families with momentary relief. Rolen started a children’s charity—the Enis Furley Foundation/E5 Foundation—with the mission of putting smiles on the faces of kids who were ill or had fallen on hard times. In addition, Rolen created a 115-acre recreation site—Camp Emma Lou—with log cabins, horses, canoes, and a baseball field. Families were allowed to stay at the site with all expenses paid by the charity. Rolen takes immense pride in his off-the-field work.
