Jumpstart Your 2024 Red Nose Day Celebration with the Harlem Globetrotters

Basketball fans across the country can show off their skills — and their support for Red Nose Day! — during halftime at Harlem Globetrotters games this month as the iconic athlete-entertainers have once again partnered with Comic Relief US to provide fun and fundraising on the court and in the stands.

Red Nose Day is joining all games across 15 states throughout April during the Harlem Globetrotters’ Domestic 2024 World Tour.  The exciting halftime skills showcase features a custom Red Nose Day basketball. Five randomly selected audience members are chosen to play on center court and test their ball handling skills as they compete to make a layup, a free throw shot, and a three-point shot.

“Red Nose Day and the Harlem Globetrotters are both globally recognized for embracing the power of fun and entertainment, and we’re delighted to be partnering with our talented friends for a second year,” said Alison Moore, CEO of Comic Relief US. “Red Nose Day funds directly support transformative social impact organizations all across the US and abroad, allowing us to make a real difference in the lives of children and young people facing poverty. Partnering with the Harlem Globetrotters and engaging with their fans throughout the US is a powerful way to strengthen our support for children, families, and communities.”
