As the nation celebrated the Great American Smokeout and Thanksgiving, Bronxites were thankful that Sports Foundation implemented a Tobacco Free Outdoor Policy on Thursday, November 17 to benefit youth, staff and all who visit the multi-service organization.

In collaboration with NYC Smoke-Free and support from the Forward South Bronx Coalition, a celebration marking this milestone decision will feature two powerful and personal animation presentations created by Bronx youth to illustrate how tobacco proliferation affects their neighborhoods.
