5th Annual NoahBRAVE 5K supporting NoahBRAVE Foundation
5th Annual NoahBRAVE 5K

About the Cause

The NoahBRAVE 5K 


In September 2020, Noah had been battling terminal brain cancer for 12-months.  A group of Noah's friends rallied around the Evans family, hosting a virtual 5K (thanks to Covid), to raise money to help with medical bills and expenses associated with Noah's fight against brain cancer. 

The inagural NoahBRAVE 5K 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 race weekend due to tumor symptoms, but was able to participate a few weekends later 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.

In September 2021, 8-months after Noah passed away, the NoahBRAVE 5K was held as the first official fundraiser for the NoahBRAVE Foundation.  With the funds raised, we were able to help care for families and fund 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 trials were; we paid for alternative treatments not covered by insurances, life flights home, and funeral expenses 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 research partners with ChadTough Defeat DIPG Foundation and became founding members of the DIPG/DMG National Tumor Board and the DIPG/DMG Research Funding Alliance. 

Each year in September, honoring Noah's diagnosis month and Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, the NoahBRAVE 5K takes place, serving as the NoahBRAVE Foundation's largest fundraiser of the year.  

In 2021, 2022, and 2023 the NoahBRAVE 5K raised over $50,000. Our goal this year is to raise $75,000.
