I am running the WDW marathon this year in honor of Jedi Noah.

Jedi Noah inspired me. He inspired a lot of people. Noah Larkin was just 6 years old when he was diagnosed with a Medulloblastoma, a malignant brain tumor. He and his wonderful family inspired me as they fought this horrible disease. Noah’s amazing mom Amber chronicled their journey on her blog. It was inspiring and awful at the same time. But I know everyone reading, like me,  just wanted him to beat this thing. I had the honor of running my first marathon 2 years ago for Team Noah with my teammate Adam. Thoughts of Noah and how brave and strong he was battling his brain cancer kept us going thoughout the race. If he could do what he was doing, we could surely do a mere 26.2 miles. The best part –Noah was there to meet us at the finish line.

Now the hard part, Noah won’t be there this year. But, I take comfort in knowing his spirit will be and that he is probably looking down and cheering me on still saying “I think he is going to win”. The thing is, I already have. Just knowing him the little that I did and being inspired by him made that happen.

January 13th I will run my second marathon. This time in honor of my buddy Jedi Noah. Please donate now to my page at Team Noah and help us fight pediatric brain cancer! There are many more kids just like Noah battling right now and they need our help.

A great 26.2 mile run today at the Walt Disney World Marathon! Adam and I crossed the finish line together just 4 hrs and 21 mins after we started at 5:40 am. The weather was great and as an added bonus Noah himself was waiting at the finish line to see us. What a great day! Go Team Noah! (we did)

Running for a cure. Go Team Noah!

This Sunday I will be running my first Marathon right here at Walt Disney
World. I am running it as Team Noah to help fight pediatric brain cancer.
And we need your support!

Noah is just one of the many children fighting a deadly brain and spinal
cancer right now and there is actually very little support and research
money out there for pediatric brain tumors. Please consider supporting Team
Noah however you can through the Noah’s Light Foundation at:
http://www.noahslightfoundation.org/

Seriously, every little bit helps! You can also come out to the Marathon and
cheer on Team Noah live Sunday Jan 9th at the Walt Disney World Resort.
Just look for Adam Voigt and myself with the green Team Noah shirts. Thanks in
advance for your support!

-Will
Go Team Noah!
