The Harlem Globetrotters visited children at Jersey City Medical Center – Barnabas Health on Wednesday, December 10, 2014. Marli Vogel-Gelfand, Director of Children Services stood back and watched in total amazement as Harlem Globetrotter, Corey “Thunder” Law demonstrated ball handling skills to children in the JCMC- Barnabas Health after school children’s programs.
“Thunder” “has been a record-breaking machine in his first year-plus with the Globetrotters. During that time, he has smashed two Guinness World Records®: one for the longest basketball shot – connecting from 109 feet 9 inches, beating the old mark by 5 feet 2 inches; and for the farthest basketball shot made backwards – from 82 feet 2 inches, beating the old mark by exactly 10 feet.
