what do you get when you put 3 kids, 2 adults, and a dog in an Jeep

 for a 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 4000 miles across the United States, stopping along the way for meet ups, community events and 5K fundraisers.

The Route

Here is an estimated schedule, but please allow us some grace as weather and the legs of an 11 year old boy makes this difficult to plan exactly. 

January - April: Starting in Key West, FL at the Southernmost Tip, along A1A to Melbourne FL. We then head West to Orlando, as we turn North through Gainesville then to the Florida, Georgia state line. We will head North along Scenic Route 41 through most of Georgia as we cross the Georgia, Tennessee boarder just south of Chattanooga. Heading through Chattanooga along Route 41 to Nashville.
