Yankees’ Player Luke Voit Helps Kids Get Active

Yankees’ Player Luke Voit Helps Kids Get Active

On Thursday, September 19th, Luke Voit of the New York Yankees took a break from the MLB playoff push to recognize the kids at William Lloyd Garrison Elementary School for their participation in the Active Schools program. Even though the school is only a couple of blocks from Yankee Stadium, this was the first visit from a Yankees player in years. During his time with the students – all of whom wore their favorite Yankees gear – Luke acknowledged their commitment and dedication to the program and then participated in a handful of physical fitness activities with the kids. It was such a fun day for the kids, that they won’t soon forget Luke’s visit!
