Noah's March to Cure Diabetes
Noah’s March Foundation sole purpose is to fundraise to cure diabetes. Noah looked at leaders like General Patton and recognized that if you want to achieve your goal with a group of people all moving in the same direction, you don’t walk…you March! Noah has reached out to a number of scientists who have active research projects and they all say the same thing: If we only had a little more money, we can cure this disease. What tends to be the most expensive part of research are human trials which recently have been receiving less funding. Noah’s March will be fundraising to support the research devoted to finding a cure within the next ten years.
According to the JDRF, between 2002-2013 the incidence of Type I Diabetes has increased in children by 57%. In August 2016, JDRF released a report that if a cure is not found we will experience a 303% increase is Type I Diabetes by 2050. What that means is that of the 4 million children born a year, 50,000 of them will get diabetes each year. That is around 10% of our children!
Starting at approximately 7:15am (sunrise) on January 1, 2017, the Noah’s March will commence from Key West, FL to Blaine, WA (about 4000 miles). You can see on the website www.NoahsMarch.com the entire map.
