Dennis Rodman Brushes Shoulders With Helping Hoops

By 04/02/2015News

NBA Hall of Famer and 5-time Championship winner, Dennis Rodman, came to town on February 4, 2015, and Helping Hoops did not miss out on the chance to brush shoulders with a legend of the game. Rodman was visiting as part of his Bad Boy Tour, and spoke to a full Athanaeum Theatre in Melbourne about his life growing up, the struggles he faced as a young man, depression, his triumphs and challenges as an NBA players, and his colourful personal life

Helping Hoops took six participants from the Helping Hoops Sunshine program to the show, along with five very eager volunteers who have donated their time to the charity on an ongoing basis. The group took over the theatre’s foyer prior to the show and ran shooting games with the public before doors opened. This proved a fun and interactive way to promote the work we do to the basketball public, and show how the game can be used as an agent for social change.

We would like to thank Ryan and Slater and Swann Productions for the opportunity to participate, and we wish Dennis all the best with the remainder of the tour.
