The Hunt Michael Hollis Fund supports families who have loved ones with mitochondrial disease, developmental delays, and special needs through raising awareness and money to help find a cure and to provide various therapy programs. Ellen and Michael Hollis established Team Hunt in January 2011 to create an opportunity for friends, family, and community to swim, bike, and run to honor children who experience challenges growing, both mentally and physically.
Together, Team Hunt, Team Hunt Adventures, and The Hunt Michael Hollis Fund honor their son, Hunt. Hunt Hollis suffers from mitochondrial disease, which is a chronic, genetic disorder that occurs when the mitochondria of the cell fails to produce enough energy for cell or organ function. This is associated with slow growth and developmental delays. Hunt receives feeding, speech, occupational, and physical therapies. He is a happy, lovable, curly headed boy who is full of life. Inspired by Hunt, Ellen and Michael are working to improve the quality of life for children who have special needs and support the families who care for them through the grantmaking of The Hunt Michael Hollis Fund.Visit the Team Hunt Website
