Globetrotters show off skills, teach anti-bullying lesson at Rosemont school
Harlem Globetrotters Shane "Scooter" Christensen and Alex "Moose" Weeks showed off their basketball talents, and shared important lessons about bullying, to a packed house of students and educators Monday morning at Rosemont Elementary School in Rosemont.
More than 250 students between the ages of 6 and 12 listened as the duo discussed the "ABCs of Bullying Prevention," a program designed by the Globetrotters and the National Campaign to Stop Violence. The program focuses on action, bravery and compassion -- the ABCs -- and teaches kids tools they can use to reduce bullying on a daily basis.
The players later taught some of their tricks to students, giving a sneak preview of their upcoming shows at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 27 at the Allstate Arena.
