This past weekend (5/20/17), with the help of South Bronx Councilman Rafael Salamanca Jr. we hosted a free wallball (handball) tournament at Alfred E. Smith H.S. in the Bronx. We partnered with local health care provider Urban Health to provide sex education and free condoms to our age eligible participants. This was the 3rd Wallball tournament of 2017 serving over 100 teens across the 5-boroughs of New York City!
