Updated: Aug 20, 2021
Tennis star Naomi Osaka led the charge on Saturday for relief efforts following Haiti's 7.2-magnitude earthquake that has killed hundreds of people.
Osaka, the No. 2 player in the world, tweeted that she's scheduled to start a tournament next week and she plans to "give all the prize money to relief efforts for Haiti."
Japan's Osaka, 23, has a bye to the second round of the Western & Southern Open, which starts Monday in Cincinnati.
Pro soccer team Miami FC tweeted Saturday that it, too, was looking for ways to help. "Miami FC is currently working with local agencies to find ways to assist with relief efforts," it said.
