Reasons 2 Run

No Known Cure…

It is vitally important to exhaust every resource, to explore every avenue to help find a cure for Batten Disease. It is a very rare genetic neurological degenerative brain disease which strikes infants and children. There is no known cure….yet. But there is HOPE. Please take a moment to learn about and donate. All proceeds go directly to find the cure.

Ways You Can Help My Run

No Road Support Crew…

In 2011, Noah ran with a support chase truck hauling water, food and extra clothing. This year in an effort to bring more attention to curing Batten Disease, Noah is running solo across the U.S. with no support crew and must rely on resources along the way to supply food, water, shoes, and clothing for the run.

You and I Can Make a Difference.

I appreciate your support with any of the donation options listed above. With your donation to help, you become a partner in helping me with valuable resources required to complete the “Run Coast 2 Coast” effort. Together, You and I can make a difference in finding a cure for Batten Disease.

More people have climbed Mount Everest
than have run across America.

Thanks goes out to
