On Saturday, May 11, 2019, Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. hosted the annual Health Day as part of Bronx Week 2019.

The event featured the first ever Father and Child Softball Classic, hosted in conjunction with Bronx Fathers Taking Action in the nearby Patterson Playground. Fathers, uncles, grandfathers and other male role models competed with their children in a friendly six-inning softball game.

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