Yesterday, adidas and Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah helped a few lucky kids get ready to go back to school by taking them on an exclusive shopping spree at Kids Foot Locker on State Street in Chicago. Joakim helped more than 40 kids from his Noah’s Arc Foundation select new adidas shoes, shirts and sweatshirts to start the school year. Shoutout to Joakim for being such a great person, on and off the floor. Salutes to you sir.
No stranger to making an impact in the community, Joakim was awarded the February 2015 NBA Cares Community Assist Award. His Noah’s Arc Foundation aims to provide diverse opportunities for kids to become more aware and conscious of their ability to make a positive impact on themselves and their community.
