About Us

Who are we?

We are a group of friends and family that suffered the loss of a dear friend, Ron Smead, to kidney cancer at the age of 40.  After his passing we felt that we needed to keep his spirit alive by doing something GREAT!


The NOR Foundation has vowed to make a difference in our community since 2009.  Each year we partner with an organization that has “wowed” us with their current initiatives.  Throughout the year all of The NOR Foundation’s fundraising efforts will benefit this chosen charity.  Since our inception we have forged some beautiful relationships and each day are humbled by the unselfish acts of those in our community.  We look forward to building on these relationships and meeting new friends along the way!
