This week’s Cardi’s Furniture & Mattresses Hometown Sports Hero is North Kingstown’s Noah Iden.
The North Kingstown senior is helping to raise money for pediatric cancer research this fall as part of the Kick-It Champions program. For every field goal and extra point he scores, pledges will go to the fund powered by Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.
Finding a cure for cancer is a cause close to Noah’s heart. His mother, Kristin, was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma when he was just 4 years old and has been in remission thanks to the treatment she received from Dr. Robert Legare and his Oncology team at Women and Infants Hospital.
Noah is hoping to raise more than $5,000 this season, one he hopes the Skippers can carry into December’s playoff round.
