THE BRONX – New York Giants running back Rashad Jennings visited Hunts Point Elementary School Monday to promote literacy.
The Rashad Jennings Reading Challenge is a monthlong program that encourages students to read as many books as possible.
“I struggled with reading. I grew up with a reading comprehension deficient,” Jennings says. “What I’m trying to do is kind of unmask the NFL and say ‘here’s my struggles, don’t be ashamed of it.’”
