As Director of Community Outreach, Mr. Walton focuses on establishing charitable sponsorships for inner city youth to attend the new Altitude Basketball Academy, scheduled to be launched in the second quarter of 2021. Walton is also exploring other difference-making charitable programs for Company involvement.
Adrian Walton (aka Whole Lotta Game, aka A Butta, aka Hollywood A), is best known as one of the greatest streetball players of all time, winning 5 championships out of 6 championship game appearances at Harlem’s famed Rucker Park EBC Tournament. He is currently hosting the highly acclaimed “Streets First” podcast and has a guest list for the coming year that features DJ Khaled, Carmelo Anthony, Teresa Weatherspoon, Montel Williams, and Stephon Marbury.

“I feel truly blessed to be given this kind of opportunity with a company of this magnitude. There is so much excitement and such an incredible buzz surrounding ALTD and I intend to take our message all across the country, bringing light to the people who need it the most. I will do everything I can to help ALTD help some of the great charities out there that touch so many of our lives.”
Legendary tennis star Yannick Noah will be playing a major role in ALTD’s charitable and relief efforts and has already begun working with his two-time, NBA All-Star son, Joakim Noah, on ALTD’s Water to Africa Relief Program.
In 1971, Arthur Ashe discovered 11-year-old Yannick Noah on a tennis court in the former French colony of Cameroon, Africa. Seven years later, the two played doubles together at Wimbledon. Five years after that, Noah became the last Frenchman to win a Grand Slam singles title and remains France’s highest ranked player of all time.
Yannick Noah won the French Open in 1983 and is the captain of both France’s Davis Cup and Fed Cup teams. He was awarded the Philippe Chatrier Award (the ITF’s highest accolade) and was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame. Noah famously became a pop singer after his retirement, but less well known is his ongoing passion and commitment to charity work.
In 1996, Noah began Fête le Mur, a foundation that introduces underprivileged children to tennis and helps them find jobs in sports. He has also provided great support for Enfants de la Terre, a charity started by his mother in 1988, as well as AIDS and environmental charities.
Today, Yannick and Joakim actively support the Oyebog Tennis Academy in Cameroon and their good friend Joseph Oyebog, who famously said, “WE NEED WATER.” Using ALTD’s air-to-pure-water-systems, the super duo can now provide a solution.
Two-Time NCAA Basketball Champion and NBA All-Star Joakim Noah will play a leading role in ALTD’s charitable initiatives and relief efforts, along with his father, legendary tennis star Yannick Noah. The duo will be bringing ALTD’s air-to-pure-water systems to Africa, via ALTD’s Water to Africa Relief Program.
Noah played college basketball for the Florida Gators, winning back-to-back NCAA championships in 2006 and 2007. The Chicago Bulls selected Noah with the ninth overall pick in the 2007 NBA draft. In 2014, Noah was named All-NBA First Team as well as NBA Defensive Player of the Year.
Throughout his career, Joakim dedicated himself to making a difference in the lives of inner-city youth and, in 2010, he and his mother founded the Noah’s Arc Foundation. In recognition of his selfless efforts, Joakim was the recipient of the 2015 J. Walter Kennedy Citizenship Award and was also the winner of the NBA Cares Community Assist Award. In 2021, Joakim became one of five former NBA greats to personally invest in the new “NBA Africa” program and its initiatives.
The Noah’s Arc Foundation will also be involved in raising funds needed for ALTD’s new Altitude Basketball Academy, which will help lift the lives and potential of impoverished kids around the globe by giving them access to top-tier education and training.
Three-time NBA Champion Danny Green will be working with ALTD’s Director of Community Outreach and his former Rucker Park teammate/legendary street ball player Adrian Walton (A Butta), to help develop and launch Altitude’s first Basketball Academy. The Academy will give underprivileged, deserving kids a top-tier education while also getting the best basketball coaching and training available.
Danny Green has been a champion at every level of basketball he has played. He is currently with the Philadelphia 76ers after winning back-to-back championships with the Toronto Raptors and Los Angeles Lakers, and prior to that with the San Antonio Spurs. He won an NCAA Championship at the University of North Carolina where he maintains the distinction of playing in more games (145) and having more wins (123) than anyone who ever played for this iconic program, which produced many of the greatest players to ever play the game. Known for his lock-down defense and exceptional three-point shooting, Green has been a key contributor on both ends of the floor throughout his career.
Green will further utilize his expertise and extensive connections to facilitate the sale of Altitude’s customized hypoxic training chambers that simulate high-altitude for elite athletes as well as ALTD’s other breakthrough technologies.
“We have been developing high growth strategies centered on a series of targeted acquisitions and the implementation of some major new initiatives and contracts for our existing businesses. We look forward to the opportunity to share our story with the investing public and taking Altitude International to the highest possible level.”
