According to WILX-TV 10, Noah Barnes has type one diabetes and is walking across the U.S. to raise awareness and funds for the disease.

Noah started his journey on January 1st, 2017 with a big dream.  Noah and his father start their day sometime between 9 and 11 a.m. and walk about 15 to 26 miles per day, depending on weather and how Noah is feeling.

The idea to walk across the U.S. came from his sadness as well as being inspired by Terry Fox, who went across Canada with one leg for cancer.

Noah and his father have probably another eight weeks to go and said they are expecting to finish somewhere around November 18th.  If you would like to help Noah, visit
