Noah (11yrs old) has completed about 4000 miles on foot as he passes through Kelso & Castle Rock today. Noah will continue North as he passes through Olympia/Tacoma, Washington metro this week. Noah was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when he was 16 months old and has lived with insulin shots most of his life. Last year he decided he didn’t want to be a diabetic and wanted to do something about it. Noah started in Key West, FL on Jan 1, 2017 and will end in Blaine, WA. Noah will be the youngest person to cross America since they have been recording crossings from 1909.
Diabetes affects 30 million Americans (10% of the US population) and if not cured by 2050, America Diabetes Association predicts over 100 million Americans will have diabetes (33% of the US population) The speed that this disease is moving is at alarming levels, not to mention the financial costs involved with treatment and the strain on our healthcare system.
