5 Things To Know About Noah Galloway

5. He’s a father of three: First things first, Noah is a daddy! He has three kids: Jack, Rian and Colston Galloway.

4. He’s Alabama born and bred: Not only was Noah born in Alabama– Birmingham to be exact– he still resides there. When he’s not competing on Dancing, Noah lives in Alabaster, Alabama.

3. He has his own hashtag: Sure, lots of us have mottos we live by, but not everyone has a hashtag. Noah uses #NoExcusesNoah to always remind himself to be his best.

2. He gives back: Not only does Noah inspire change with his resilience, he is also responsible for it. He recently created his own charity, No Excuses Charitable Fund. The group raises money and awareness for organizations that are near and dear to him, including Operation Enduring Warrior and the YMCA of Alabaster, AL.

1. A mirror saved his life: After sustaining his life changing injuries, like many veterans, Noah became very depressed. He started to drink heavily and stopped working out. Then, one night, he took a long look in the mirror and realized that he was so much more than his injuries. From that day forward, he set a goal to become healthy once again and to inspire others.
