"I am sincerely thankful for Chris Canty. He is a leader and role model for all of us. Because of his focus on the health and wellness of our students along with his pursuit of encouraging collective responsibility for our youth, it is my hope that as our students play in this yard they will feel wrapped in the arms of a community that supports their development and well-being. This yard will be a place where many joyful memories will be made."
- Dr. Giovanna Delucchi, Principal, P.S. 43 Bronx
The Chris Canty Foundation is proud to sponsor the schoolyard renovation at P.S. 43 located in the Bronx, New York. Opened in December 2017, the schoolyard now provides the students with a safe place to play and learn with a newly installed turf field surrounded by a running track, playground games, a separate educational space and a fully padded basketball area.
The Foundation gratefully acknowledges the support received from John McGinley, Raymond Quartararo of JP Morgan Chase & Co., Spencer Jurman and JLL, Inc., Daniel Bernstein and Kutnicki Bernstein Architects, Lev Feldman and Brighton Builders for execution and the NYC Department of Education's Division of School Facilities for making this endeavor a reality.
