About the Foundation

Noah's March Foundation, Inc., was inspired by a 10-year-old named Noah, and brought into existence by his family and loved ones. Founded in 2016, we are focused on eradicating Type 1 Diabetes. Supported by the foundation, Noah and his family will spend 2017 marching across the United States to raise awareness and funds to cure Type 1 Diabetes. Noah's March Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.

Noah was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at 16 months of age, and spent a week recovering in the hospital. He has been living with the daily struggle of managing his diabetes ever since. After stumbling across an article about a diabetes walk fundraiser, he asked his dad, "How far do I need to walk so that I can be cured?" Shortly after Noah watched a Documentary Into the Wind, about Terry Fox, who ran across Canada in 1980 with one leg. Terry's "Marathon of Hope" inspired Noah to convince his family to cross America to fundraise for diabetes research.

This is how Noah's March Foundation began.

Hi, I’m Noah and I am just like most 10 year old boys. I like Legos, MineCraft, and vanilla ice cream. I love my puppy, “Rex,” who is an English Bullterrier. Things I am most interested in is history, specifically World War II. I really like studying the tanks, ships and airplanes. When I grow up, I want to be an engineer and design super cool weapons for the U.S. government.
