My name is Bryan Goodman, and I will be running in the Appletree half marathon on September 16th in Vancouver, USA! I am running to raise awareness and money for NOE International. NOE International began 20 years ago in Morelia, Mexico with the objective of having a nice, safe place, the children in Morelia could go after school, to connect with other young people, learn about Christianity, learn (practice) the English language, and enjoy games, sports and fellowship! I was connected with NOE 6 years ago, when we hosted a young man, Emmanuel, who made the NOE All-Star his senior year, and came up to stay with us the summer of 2013. Manny is very close in age to my two middle sons, so they all immediately hit it off and had a great summer. Every summer since we have brought Manny back, to spend time with our family and build a deep relationship with this very impressive young man.
I support NOE, because it is a “shining” light for the kids of the Morelia. The youth of Morelia, have a safe place to go, where they can be well fed physically, intellectually, emotionally and spiritually. NOE is a place that brings hope and opportunity to the youth, and to the entire community. It helps the children learn about future opportunities to positively impact the world they live in and how they can help others by giving back when they graduate and move on as productive adults. This is a very worthwhile organization that invests in the future of these children and their community.
I would appreciate your support of NOE, as I am honored this year to be healthy enough to fundraise on their behalf. Manny will be joining the family again in late August, and he, my son Keenan and I will be training for the run together. If you have any questions you can call me at 360-518-5344 or email me at
Please consider joining me in support of this great organization and the work they do to make young people’s long lives better!
Celebrate everlasting life! - BRYAN
