Obby Khan Lends Support to Junior Wesmen

August 9, 2013 8:01 AM | Sports



Former Winnipeg Blue Bomber-turned-restauranteur Obby Khan will take part in a special yoga class today in support of the Inner City Jr. Wesmen basketball team.

Khan will be joined by University of Winnipeg Wesmen coach Bob Axworthy at Yoga Public, 280 Fort Street, to raise funds for the deserving young team.

The 3 p.m. appearance adds to Yoga Public’s proceeds to the team throughout the month of August from their Karma Yoga classes.

Axworthy and Khan have also agreed to start a youth employment opportunity, by hiring some members of the basketball team at his popular restaurant, Shawarma Khan.

“I like giving back to a city that’s been so great to me, and this is a perfect opportunity to give some inner city girls a better chance at success”, Khan said in a release.
