Globetrotters Raise Awareness For Poverty During MT Tour

MISSOULA -

The Harlem Globetrotters are visiting their Montana fans over the next week as part of their 2014 "Fans Rule" World Tour.

As "Ambassadors of Goodwill," the world famous team is promoting awareness about their partnership with World Vision, a Christian humanitarian group that works with communities to provide long-term solutions to poverty around the world.

To get fans excited about learning more about world vision, they are getting them involved in the ball-spinning action. Fans can vote online to choose new game-changing rules. The Globetrotters are the first sports and entertainment group to let fans vote on their rules.

"It's definitely a dream come true, having the opportunity to travel the country and interact with fans. I remember when I was 7-years-old, and I went to see the Harlem Globetrotters, and I was a fan sitting in the stands, and just being in awe watching the players, and see what they can do. Now I have an opportunity to do the same thing for the generation growing up," said Globetrotter Derek "Dizzy" Grant.

The Globetrotters' first Montana stop is this Friday in Missoula. Then they head to Butte and Bozeman. For a complete schedule visit the "Fans Rule" World Tour.
