My name is Michelle DeVico, and I am organizing this fundraiser for our dear friends’ son Noah Granigan.
Noah lost all his possessions as part of the sweeping Marshall grassfires outside of Boulder, Colorado, on December 30, 2021. His girlfriend, Lauren Gaona, was home when Noah contacted her about a tweet he saw about the fires. Quickly after, Lauren saw the alert and had minutes to evacuate with no time to grab anything.
Noah was with his family in NJ at the time. Like so many other Boulder homes, the blaze consumed the house, destroying it and everything inside. Noah is a professional cyclist racing for Wildlife Generation and works part time for Stages Cycling in the off season. Lauren is a high school science teacher, and they both have the challenge of starting from nothing and need to replace necessities as well as find a new place to live. This Go Fund Me will help them purchase clothing, household goods and furniture, replace bicycles, racks and tools and finally, help with the cost of a used vehicle beyond what insurance may cover.
Noah has been a part of our family for most of his life. When our kids suffer, we suffer and no one should have to face this challenge alone. While he and Lauren are safe, part of feeling safe is having the basic necessities to live each day. Thank you for helping them rebuild.
