CHICAGO â€“ November 4, 2010 â€“ Rising NBA Star, Joakim Noah is pleased to announce the launch of his new official website www.joakimnoahonline.com . The site will serve as the ultimate resource for Noah fans worldwide. It features Joakimâ€™s official news and announcements, bio, stats, images, and video highlights.
It also features the â€œNoahâ€™s Arc Foundation,â€ which is a charitable organization Joakim co-founded with his mother, Cecilia Rodhe. Noahâ€™s Arc helps children learn more about the connection between basketball and the arts. It gives inner-city youth the rare opportunity to explore their artistic talents.
The site is being launched as the Bulls kick off the 2010-2011 season with hopes of bringing another championship to Chicago. Noah was recently named one of the Captains of the Chicago Bulls and he is looking forward to leading the team with his passion and energy.
â€œI think it is very important to create different ways to keep my fans involved,â€ says Noah. Adding, â€œThis website is a way for everyone from Chicago to Paris and beyond to be up to date with Noahâ€™s Arc Foundation and what I am doing both on and off the court.â€
In creating this site, Joakim partnered with HallPass Media, creators of several sites and social media channels for premiere athletes and events (Caroline Wozniacki, John Isner, Melanie Oudin, NBA Summer League, Adidas Nations). Future integrations call for Noah to utilize his social media channels and allow fans to share their connection between basketball and the arts.
