Mark Noah Charity weekend starts today

FARGO – This weekend, the Mark Noah Charity will be hosting events to raise money for the Smith-Lemli-Opitz/RSH Foundation.

A mite hockey tournament will be held today through Sunday. On Saturday, dinner and a silent auction will be held at Sts. Anne and Joachim Church, 5202 25th St. S., Fargo.

The Mark Noah Charity was founded by Gretchen and Mark Noah in honor of their son, Markie.

Markie Noah, 9, was diagnosed with Smith-Lemli-Opitz in 2006 as one of only 750 other patients in the U.S. with the disease.

Smith-Lemli-Opitz syndrome is a genetic disorder caused by the body’s inability to create or process cholesterol correctly. Those affected can be challenged with mental impairment, global delay and other various medical conditions.

The church dinner and silent auction will be held from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Saturday. Donations can also be made by mail at Mark Noah Charity Mite JAM, C/O Mark and Gretchen Noah, 1710 8th St. S., Fargo, ND, 58103.
