PORTSMOUTH - More than 100 people kicked it into high gear on Saturday to help a 1-year-old living with cystic fibrosis.
Karate belts of all shades packed into Elements Martial Arts to kick for a cause. They were raising money for Team Noah and the Great Strides Walk planned in York, Maine on May 22 to raise money for cystic fibrosis research.
Noah Ball was diagnosed just about a week after birth. The condition affects his lungs and digestive system.
"He's really tough. When he falls down, he's down for a minute, then he plays along," said Kendall Ball, his big sister.
The family lives in Well, Maine, but she takes karate lessons at Elements where head instructor Justin Mason came up with the idea of a kick-a-thon.
Participants agreed to try to kick a padded post as many times as possible in two minutes, having collected pledges for each kick.
"It's amazing that it came this far. I can't express enough how happy we are that these people all showed up to help us out, " said Noah's father, Dave Ball.
