South Bronx United (SBU) was one of several Bronx organizations that participated in CityYear’s BeFitBx event in the Norwood section of the Bronx about a month ago. The event served to raise awareness to Bronx residents, especially youth, about the importance of maintaining an active and healthy lifestyle. As an organization dedicated to empowering the lives of young people through sport, health and awareness, CityYear’s event was appropriate for SBU, its staff and members. In addition to an information table, SBU put on a soccer clinic for elementary school children. Thanks to U17 Sonics players Kafoumba Doumbia, Reindorf Kyei, Francisco Mendoza, Sheick Wattara and Mingoro Fanny for their help with the event and clinic.
