LITTLE ROCK, AR – A man running across the country for a cause stopped in Arkansas and met with Governor Hutchinson today.

Meet Noah Coughlan. Coughlan is running to bring more awareness to rare diseases. His stop at the State Capitol was meant to bring light and gain more support for the cause.

This is his third time running across America. Coughlan says he wanted to do something big to bring more awareness to something small.

“The reality of it is this, 30 million Americans have a rare disease. There are over 7,000 rare diseases globally. So I just felt like I could be a voice and still make an impact and wanted to contribute my voice to help the voiceless,” says Coughlan.
