Building Bridges to Better Health (BBBH) coalition members joined a “kick off” celebration on March 29 for a new mini turf soccer field at the Tea Street Sports Complex in Bound Brook. This new field demonstrates a collaboration between BBBH, RWJBarnabas Health, and Players Development Academy (PDA). T-Mobile also provided a $50,000 Hometown grant to support the project. This initiative shows BBBH's commitment to making Bound Brook & South Bound Brook healthier & stronger communities.
The celebration was capped off by a mini soccer game with community kids and PDA Alumni, including Daniel Edelman of the New York Red Bulls and Rutgers soccer players Allison Lynch and Anthony O’Donnell.
The new soccer field will help to keep local kids active, enjoying soccer, and away from potential distractions. Exercise is a great way to improve physical and mental health. The hope is that access to these fields and new programming will lead to more athletic and academic opportunities for kids living in Bound Brook and South Bound Brook.
