September 2020 was the inagural NoahBRAVE 5K, that took place on the one year anniversary of Noah's brain tumor diagnosis. People all over the world ran, walked, kayaked, and biked 3.1 miles to encourage Noah as he continued in his fight with terminal brain cancer. Ironically, Noah was in the hospital over the race weekend due to tumor symptoms, but was able to participate a few weekends following the race with the help of the NoahBRAVE 5K race team. With the outpouring of support from this inagural race, we were able to give over $6,500 to research through the Chad Tough Defeat DIPG Foundation and help the Evans family with medical bills and living expenses.
Last year, we set a goal of $50,000. God provided abundantly and after surpassing this goal, we were able to help care for families and give towards research for a cure. We paid for mortgages, utility bills, and car payments; we helped families travel from their hometown hospitals across the country to where the most promising clinical trails were; we paid for alternative treatments not covered by insurances, life flights home, and funeral costs for children who passed to Heaven. We helped families through bereavement care and continue to offer hope and support for families walking through the unimaginable earthly loss of a child. We became reserach partners with ChadTough Defeat DIPG and became founding members of the DIPG/DMG National Tumor Board.
This year, for the 3rd annual NoahBRAVE 5K, we have set a goal of $75,000. In order to reach this $75,000 goal, we are challenging people across the US, and globally, to raise money for their state “team”. If each of the 50 states can raise $1,500, we will reach our goal and be able to continue caring for families in the fight and funding research for a cure.
The race will be held over two weekends, September 16-18th and September 23-25th 2022. It will once again be a virtual 5K so people can participate any of the six days over the two weekends that commemorate the beginning of Noah's brave battle with a DMG brain tumor.
The NoahBRAVE 5K is our foundation's biggest fundraiser of the year. All proceeds from the race will be given to the NoahBRAVE Foundation for family care and to raise funds for research.
