Throgs Neck, THE BRONX (PIX11) — An organizer for My Healthy Community in the Bronx said training equipment for kids in the program was stolen last week.

Zimkoma Richards said thousands of dollars of equipment was stolen right out of the trunk of his car and now the children in the program have next to nothing to train with.

My Healthy Community hosts activities to combat obesity in the South Bronx. The theft happened on Swinton Avenue.

The trainer says it’s unclear how the thieves got into his locked car.

Richards says this is a program kids look forward to and depend on.

The program serves about 150 kids.
