Dave Noble has ALS and he is fighting back


Help him on October 3

Dave Noble was a trail builder and leader of the Soggy Bottom Kayakers. On July 1, 2020, he was diagnosed with ALS, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Lou Gehrig’s disease. He is doing his best to fight back. He has started a team, the Noble Dawgs, to raise funds to take a chomp out of ALS

Please consider joining Dave's team, the Noble Dawgs, and walking one mile to take a chomp out of ALS on October 3rd. You can do this on your own, with your own small group, or as a part of a socially distanced Tellico Village group (time and place to be determined).
