Globetrotter sends message at YMCA
William Geoghegan
Kids look on while Buckets Blake puts on a show.

Harlem Globetrotter Buckets Blake delighted a crowd of children and parents at the Kent County YMCA on Monday and shared a message of compassion along the way. Blake led more than 100 YMCA Youth in the Globetrotters’ new community outreach program, “The ABC’s of Bullying Prevention.” The Globetrotters designed the program in coordination with the National Campaign to Stop Violence. It focuses on action, bravery and compassion, while mixing in the Globetrotters’ signature basketball flair. Blake showed off his ball-handling skills, shared some tips and tricks and sank an under-handed half-court shot before closing out the program by signing autographs. The program was sponsored by Dunkin’ Donuts, and each child received a Dunkin’ Donuts basketball jersey.
