Noah John Winston Miles was a healthy, active and independent little boy who passed away suddenly and unexpectedly just four days after contracting Invasive Group A Streptococcal disease, which is the same bacteria responsible for strep throat and other skin infections. He was three and a half years old at the time.
The Miles family has established The Noah John Winston Miles Foundation as a legacy to Noah’s gentle nature. The Foundation raises funds to financially support educational programming that reduces aggressive behaviour amongst school aged children. Its primary mission is to build a community of youth who understand how their peers feel and respond with compassion and tolerance.
