Ways You Can Help My Run
Any Size Donations
My goal for this fund is to raise $5,000+ to cover my long-term expenses for the duration of this run. Expenses like hotel stays, meals, clothing, laundry, etc. I would greatly appreciate your small or large donations which can be submitted securely online at GoFundMe.com donation site – (CLICK HERE)
Water and Shoes
This fund is for immediate expenses along the way. I wear-out 15+ pairs of shoes depending on road conditions, rain etc. I average 30 miles per day and drink over 1,470 bottles of water (2+gal./day) crossing the U.S. Donate by clicking the banner above, securely with PayPal which provides me immediate funds without having to wait for a money transfer to my bank, like my GoFundMe account does. I would be grateful for a pair of shoes, some water, or both.
Buy Me a Cup of Coffee
Why a Cup of Coffee? I like coffee and I love the opportunity to have conversations with new people. It’s an opportunity to tell them why I am running and get them involved with fighting Batten Disease. I know, coffee is not a resource required to make it across. However, I do look forward to a nice warm cup of coffee to start out the cold morning runs when I can afford it.
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.

So what comes next? I’ve been wondering myself. There is no script to follow. Doing two runs across America in 3 years time has been quite the experience. So much has happened. The mental and physical process of unwinding is ongoing. This has been a team effort. In 2011 and 2013, there were many people […]
Well, I am back home. Where I left off back in July. New circumstances, and just trying to find my rhythm. My body is doing well. I am in good spirits. Have met with my family, a teacher for a local school, business owners, others who have supported the RunCoast2Coast. Have been in contact with […]

I am officially home to Vacaville, CA. I have the American Flag with me. Will be kept in a top secret location until it is decided where it will be placed. Tired, some parts still sore, and will be seeing my chiropractor this week to address some injuries I have. Thank you to my sister […]
I’m going home back to Vacaville, CA for the first time since July. Approx. 4 months away. Sitting in the airport, I find myself asking, “Did I accomplish the task at hand? Yes. I am content with the all that happened and the completion of the RunCoast2Coast. I did everything physically possible. Batten Disease Awareness […]
