Globetrotters Bring Smiles To Children's Hospital

Posted: Updated:

Whether it be a bad cold or a more serious condition, having a sick child in the hospital is never easy.

Today, the Harlem Globetrotters' Smile Patrol visited kids and their families who are staying at Sanford Children's Hospital.

From the classic move of spinning the ball on the finger, to more advanced tricks, one of their members made the rounds showing off his signature basketball handling skills, not only to impress the kids, but also to give parents a break.

We like to say laughter is a universal language, so no matter where we go in the world, we always get that message across. Kind of get you to laugh or smile-crack a little smile-I think we are doing our jobs because a smile goes a long way," says Christensen.

The Smile Patrol visits more than 200 children's hospitals worldwide every year.
