Harlem Globetrotters for a good cause…


Hey guys!  I wanted to fill you in on the really fun event we took part in a couple of weeks ago.


I have done this before 2 years ago and had a blast, so we decided to do it again this year. Basically each team pays money that goes to benefit cancer research and then everyone comes together for a super fun bar crawl.  Each team has matching colored shirts…and if you are really creative you come up with a theme.  If you know me at all, you know I always enjoy a good theme so I naturally did some research.

I had to find the perfect theme for a group activity…it had to be easy, it had to be funny, it had to stand out.  I turned to Pinterest (obvious choice) and found a picture…it was PERFECT!!!

The Harlem Globetrotters…we requested blue shirts, purchased red mesh shorts and used white duct tape to make stripes, purchased knee socks with red/blue stripes and then added accessories as needed.  We even carried around a basketball to show off our basketball skillzzz!

We were a hit…see for yourself: don’t get confused between the two pictures, we are the first one :)

While getting ready my lovely husband got creative and decided he needed a hands free cup if he was going to be doing ball tricks and partaking in a crawl…so he made this handy dandy neck strap thingy out of the extra duct tape. I was pretty impressed as was the rest of our team because they all decided to join him and made hands free cups as well.

Like mother like daughter.  If you know my aunt Mick you know she loves festive glasses…and it turns out her daughter (my cousin Kelly pictured below) must follow suite.  These also lit up in case you didn't already find them truly amazing.

For some reason we thought it was a good idea to leave our “mark” at all of the bars along the way.  We left  the letter “G” in duct tape…we really got some use out of that stuff, it can be used for ANYTHING! Please take note of the converse shoes…we really tried to go old school basketball here.

And finally, Joe and I crawlin for cancer…I really love this event.  The amount of people that show up and come together…the amount of money they raise for such a good cause.  The entire day ends up being so fun and so positive, it is really hard to not have  a good time!
