One of the Noblemen members, Josh Rubin took advantage of an opportunity to be a hero and did a very Noble Deed for a local girl with cerebral palsy. The Noblemen were contacted by Cerebral Palsy of Virginia and were informed that the young lady was in a bind. The floor of her bathroom had a very large rotten space in the middle of it and she could no longer access the bathroom in her wheelchair. The family did not have the necessary resources available to fix the floor and were resorting to giving the young lady sponge baths as she could no longer get to the bath tub. The Noblemen discussed the problem at our local membership meeting and as soon as the conversation began Josh stepped up and siad he had a flooring business and would be delighted to fix the floor free of charge. Josh and his crew inspected the bathroom and decided to do much more than just fix the floor. Josh did a complete remodel of the bathroom worth over $14,000. The family was amazed and extremely grateful to have someone do such a benevolent act for them. Big thanks to Josh Rubin for being such a Noble-man!

 


 
 
 Every year the Noblemen provide support at a very cool event called the "Allen Stone Braveheart Run Swim Run". The event takes place at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront and includes the opportunity for people with special needs to participate as well. The Noblemen help to make that opportunity a reality! The Noblemen provided over 40 volunteers on the morning of the race to help with a number of tasks. We helped assemble racing wheelchairs, inflate rafts (so special needs kids could be pulled through the swim portion of the race), helped kids onto and off of the rafts, and helped disassemble the the wheelchairs and deflate the rafts after the race. Thank you so much to all of the volunteers who came out and supported this event and special thanks to Paul Thatcher for coordinating the volunteers!
 
 
 
 The Noblemen have been longtime supporters of Edmarc Hospice for Children. Edmarc contacted us this summer and asked if we could fund tickets for several children to visit the Virginia Aquarium and Ocean Breeze Water Park. It was our great pleasure to fulfill these requests!
