On Saturday, May 08, 2021, Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. hosted the Bronx Week Skills & Drills Soccer Challenge in conjunction with Bronx Fathers Taking Action and South Bronx United. Fathers, uncles, grandfathers and other male role models joined their children for a soccer challenge at Patterson Playgrounds.

Borough President Diaz also recognized John Peter Zenger School, Public School 18, and Principal Lauren Sewell-Walker, for being a longstanding host and partner for this Bronx Week event each year.

“Our children are the future of this borough, so it is important to use healthy activities as a way to build trust and bond in a meaningful way. We are strengthening those important relationships and encouraging healthy habits for the whole family when we stay active with our sons and daughters, and I was so proud to be a part of today’s event,” said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr.

Now in its 49th year, Bronx Week is the annual celebration of everything that makes the Bronx a great place to live, work and raise a family.

Bronx Week is made possible with the generous support of Gold Sponsors Montefiore Medical Center, Empire BlueCross BlueShield and BronxCare Health System.
