The Players’ Tribune teamed up with the Garden of Dreams Foundation over the weekend to host a breakfast for children and their families from the Make-A-Wish Hudson Valley chapter. Knicks guard Langston Galloway spent his day off after a back-to-back with Knicks legend John Starks in Tarrytown, NY, greeting and handing toys out to children living with life-threatening medical conditions. The Players’ Tribune was there to document the visit.
