THE TEAM STANDING CYCLIST SPOTLIGHT
Around that same time, Noah watched a documentary about a cancer patient named Terry Fox who, to raise money for cancer research, began an impossible journey to run across Canada, on one leg. The next day, Noah decided that he wanted to do his part to find a cure that impacts over 29 million people in America alone. Noah presented a map of the United States to his father and explained his plan on how the journey could be achieved. Noah’s father was speechless and seeing the pure heart of a child with the determination of a freight train, Noah’s March was created.
NOAH BARNES AND HIS REMARKABLE 4,000 MILE MARCH ACROSS AMERICA - In Progress - one state to go!
Noah was diagnosed with Type I Diabetes at 16 months old. He has been living with the daily challenge of monitoring his blood sugar levels. While doing research for a school project, he came across a “walk for a cure.” He asked his Dad, “How far do I need to walk to be cured?” His father explained that there wasn’t actually a cure yet and that the events he found were fundraisers for research.
