Bradden helped lead the Chiefs to back-to-back Super Bowls. They won the championship two years ago. He says it’s important to give back to his community.

"I think it's very important that the city sees people from the community that's been places come back speak to them and speak life to the community let them know that they can be successful," he said.

“To bring back some normalcy to them, to allow for them to get back to playing basketball, football, cheerleading, softball, all the activities that kids used to do on a normal basis we brought it back to the city and we wanted to make sure we could bring it to them in their community at Tates Gym," Riviera Beach City Councilmember Doug Lawson said.
