As many of you know, April is Child Abuse Prevention Month and One Hope United has created the GO BLUE campaign to raise awareness about the importance of stopping child abuse before it starts. And we’re thrilled to have Joakim Noah lend his time and talents to help us spread the word!
Through their Noah’s Arc Foundation Joakim and his mother Cecilia Rodhe engage kids with art and sports so that every child can “be able to express their true self in order to fulfill their dreams.” They have also developed a great relationship with the boys from One Hope United’s CARE Day Treatment Program, hosting the boys at Joakim’s home to shoot some hoops, gather around the campfire, and just relax and chat. We’re so grateful for their support.
But you don’t have to be an NBA superstar to be a hero to child. From local business owners to community leaders to our youngest volunteers, everyone is invited to show their support in the fight to end child abuse and GO BLUE this April!
