what do you get when you put
3 kids, and 2 adults, in an Jeep
for the year?
An amazing excursion to save lives.
We're totally not kidding.
Noah asked his family to press "pause" on their normal, day-to-day lives, load up in a Jeep, and travel across the country to raise awareness and funds for Type 1 Diabetes research. So that's what they're doing. Beginning Key West, Florida, in January and ending in Blaine, WA in November, Noah's family will march over 4000 miles across the United States, stopping along the way for meet ups and community events.
