Del Harris was one of the greatest leaders in the NBA during his time in the league as a head coach from 1979 to 1999. In 1995 he was named the NBA Coach of the Year, and led the Houston Rockets to a Western Conference Championship in 1981 as a second year coach. Now, Harris is taking his leadership skills and using them to rally others to take a stand against family violence.
On Thursday, October 2 Harris will be leading the men in Collin County, Texas in the White Ribbon Pledge at the second annual Collin County White Ribbon Rally on the Preston Ridge Campus of Collin College in Frisco. The goal is to both inform and enable those who work to eliminate abuse and respond to family violence, and also encourage men to stand up against violence and abuse in all its forms.
The event will begin at 5:30 and will be followed by a rally at 6:30 p.m. This is a great event, led by a great man, to inspire other great men to stand up and take a stand against family violence, so if you have the opportunity to make it out, it’ll be more than worth it.
