MHE Warriors Scavenger Hunt
Mission and Purpose
My name is Caleb, and I was diagnosed with a rare genetic bone disorder, Multiple Hereditary Exostoses (MHE), at the age of two. I have had twelve surgical procedures, with more planned. Currently, the only treatment for this disease is orthopedic surgery. MHE affects only 1 in 50,000 people. Due to the rarity of this disease, medical research and research funding is limited.
I have a desire to help others with this condition. I am asking that you join me in my efforts to raise money for research with hope of finding a cure so that one day, MHE can be resolved with medication, and not surgery.
On October 15, 2022, my family will be hosting a city-wide scavenger quest. I have traditionally held a 5K and had great success, but wanted to reboot my event in a fun, new way. All funds will go directly to The MHE Research Foundation. This foundation is managed by all volunteers and was established by a family whose son also has MHE. They are passionate about finding a cure and we are honored to support them. The quest will be city wide, and we will have closing ceremonies at Patterson Park, Wolfforth, Texas. I have included a link to The MHE Research Foundation website.
Please join in my dream of finding a cure by considering one of our sponsorship opportunities. Please visit our site at: https://www.mherf.org/warriors-for-mhe or Facebook – Warriors for MHE for additional information. Thank you.
