“Whether it is sponsoring our annual Family Olympiad or hosting movie screenings such as 'Brian Banks,' collaboration with entities such as The Shadow League are key, working together as a community to help improve the health and lives of our Bronx residents. I want to thank Yussuf Khan, GM and SVP of The Shadow League, a Bronxite who has done well and who does not forget his roots, working hard alongside us to improve the lives of residents through sports, physical activity, and most importantly, participation and engagement in the community.”
