A Fall Full of Service and Culture for CitySquash Students

CitySquashers have been busy this fall with community service and cultural outings around the neighborhood and beyond.  On October 16, our middle school and high school students joined CitySquash staff, mentors, and hundreds of others to participate in New York City’s annual 5K Terry Fox Run.  Students raised over $1300 for cancer research and got a workout running through Central Park.  The same group of students continued giving back to the community on Election Day when they used their day off from school for a neighborhood clean-up here in the Bronx.  On Thursday evening, November 4, seventh and eighth graders took a trip to Stamford, CT for a screening of the squash documentary, “Keep Eye on Ball” about the legendary Hashim Khan.  The screening was followed by a question and answer session with the director and producer of the film, in which the kids asked questions and learned more about the making of the documentary.  Overall, it’s been a great fall of not only squash and school, but also community service and cultural enrichment!
