• Be Someone's H.E.R.O.
  • Make a Difference

We Need You to Keep Helping

Nolan’s H.E.R.O. Foundation is a non-profit organization formed to carry on the mission of Nolan Berthelette, a Pittsfield, Maine youth, who suffered a fatal brain aneurysm at the age of 14. Our goal is to raise awareness of brain aneurysms, organ donation, and to support those who are finding ways to be a H.E.R.O. (Helping Everyone Realize Opportunities) in the lives of others. We also want to inspire and encourage youth to participate in academics, exercise, music, sports, and a love for the outdoors and nature. These are all things Nolan loved and excelled in.
