MHE Warriors Scavenger Hunt
Mission and Purpose
Hi, it’s been a while. While COVID initially impaired our ability to host the event, it was rather ironically MHE that’s stopped us in more recent years. We’re up to 14 surgeries, and not exactly done quite yet. I suppose I should just rather address things in general terms for those who are new though.
I’m Caleb, nice to meet you! I’ve been dealing with Multiple Hereditary Exostoses for about as long as I can remember, and I’m not sure any of those memories have been particularly pleasant. At the age of 9 I made the decision to host a local fun run to raise funds to cure MHE all together, and we continued that fun run until COVID 19 stopped all public gatherings. With that break, and two more surgeries closely afterwards, we took a step back and reevaluated our ideas for the event. We decided that it was rather unfair that people with MHE couldn’t really run, and after thinking on that issue for a bit came to this year's new event, the Warriors for MHE Quest for a Cure.
Inspired by escape rooms and puzzles and things of the sort, Quest for a Cure hopes to bring an event that’s fun for the whole family, and doesn’t leave anyone out. We sincerely hope this new idea works out, it was amazingly fun to set up, and we hope you’ll enjoy it too!
