Harlem Globetrotter player talks to kids about bullying prevention

By WKTV News

(WKTV) - Some local elementary students got the chance to learn the ABCs of bullying prevention and have fun at the same time.

Firefly Fisher from the world-famous Harlem Globetrotters stopped in at Thomas Jefferson Elementary School in Utica on Monday morning. It's all part of the national campaign to stop violence.

The program focuses on action, bravery and compassion. Fisher was able to incorporate his signature ball-handling skills and the kids loved it.

"It's very important that I'm here to talk to these kids, because bullying happens all over the world," Fisher said. "I feel like they got it. This is a great school. They won't allow it to happen. They're going to do great."

The entire team will be at the Utica Memorial Auditorium on Feb. 5 for the Fans Rule the World Tour. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m. To get tickets, click here.
