Bulls TV recaps boys in CARE program's day with Joakim Noah
Chicago Bulls TV posted this video depicting the relationship between the boys from One Hope United’s CARE Day Treatment Program and Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah. The boys recently spent the day with Noah and his mother Cecilia Rodhe at his house where they played basketball, ate lunch, sat around a campfire and just hung out talking. Noah and Rodhe are co-founders of Noah’s Arc Foundation, which aims to help children achieve their full potential through art and sports.
“Meeting a basketball player means a lot to us,” said Isaiah, one of the boys in the program. “Other people don’t get to see what we go through, but he gets to meet us. He understands.”
“I’m in a privileged position,” Noah said. “I have a voice and kids listen. So, I think I have a responsibility to do positive things for the community.”
