The Patriots’ Nate Solder is teaming up with the Harlem Globetrotters in a campaign against bullying.

Solder, New England's Patriots 2011 first-round pick, and Buckets Blakes and TNT Maddox will take a trip to Eliot K-8 School on Wednesday, April 3 at 11:30 am to hold an assembly on the Globetrotters newest initiative, “The ABCs of Bullying Prevention.”

The campaign breaks down preventing bullying in to three areas; action, bravery, and compassion.

Students will also join Solder in learning a few Globetrotter moves.

Thanks to the Patriots, the Globetrotters will be donating 100 tickets to youth from Boys and Girls Clubs of Boston to see the Globetrotters live at the TD Garden on Saturday, April 6 at 1 pm and Sunday, April 7 at 1 pm.

Known as the original “Ambassadors of Goodwill,” the Globetrotters developed “The ABCs of Bullying Prevention” with the National Campaign to Stop Violence.
