Please join in this community event to celebrate the life of Noah Compton-Meyer and remember the light he brought to South Ardmore Park, and those who knew him. Proceeds from the event will be directed to Caring Heart, a nonprofit that provides shelter, education, job training, and support for marginalized women and children in Noah’s birth town of Taraz, Kazakhstan. The course consists of three, one-mile loops around the park. A half-mile fun run will also be held inside the park prior to the 5K race. T-shirts and bibs will be provided to all registrants. Refreshments will be available in the park (northeast of the playground) and a water station will be set up half-way through the race loop. The race will be professionally timed by the Bryn Mawr Racing Company. You may register here!
On March 2022, South Ardmore Park resident and Bala Cynwyd Middle Schooler, Noah Compton-Meyer, lost his life tragically and unexpectedly to an undiagnosed congenital condition. He was 12 years old. Noah was a generous, funny, athletic, quick-witted, vibrant child who led a close-knit pack of neighborhood friends. He spent his days outdoors – running, playing, riding his bike, and literally swinging from tree branches. Noah lived the kind of childhood that we all wish for our children and he was a fixture at South Ardmore Park. Noah was such a part of the park that many neighbors, friends, and family of the Compton-Meyers raised money for a bench, tree, and stone to be placed in the park in his memory. The memorial is located Northeast of the playground, close to where Noah and his friends so often enjoyed an ice cream cone from the ice cream truck on summer afternoons. The Noah Compton-Meyer Memorial Race is to remember Noah and raise money for Caring Heart, an organization in Kazakhstan, where Noah was born. Caring Heart is a non-profit that provides support and education to single mothers and disadvantaged children in Kazakhstan.
