Team Hunt

Hunt Hollis

Hunt is a happy, curly headed nine-year old who is full of life despite his diagnosis of Mitochondrial Disease. He is our inspiration and the driving force behind our efforts to improve the quality of life for children and families who have special needs.

Our Mission

Team Hunt is dedicated to serving families whose lives are affected by diagnosis of disease or disability. We support therapy programs, offer hope and create awareness of what’s possible through adventuring outside.

Read Hunt's Story

We're in this together.

We started Team Hunt with the goal of raising money by running in races for those who can’t run. Throughout training we found ourselves thinking, “if Hunt can go through what he has been through, then I can run one more mile, swim one more lap, bike one more hill”. With Hunt as our inspiration, our mission was to improve the quality of life for children and families who live with mitochondrial disease.

Since then, our mission has expanded beyond a focus on Hunt’s disease to support all families whose lives are affected by disease and disability. We want to spread the message of hope and create awareness of what’s possible regardless of circumstance through a combination of fundraising to support therapy programs and providing resources to families to make exposure to the outdoors  more accessible.

Hunt’s doctors said he wouldn’t walk, and now he’s not just walking, but thriving through a combination of traditional therapies and exposure to the therapeutic benefits of exploration and adventure. We invite you to join us in celebrating the everyday victories, compiling resources for families whose lives are affected by disease and disability, and helping to show that adventure is accessible no matter the limitations.

Our Impact

Since 2011, Team Hunt has raised over $300,000 to support life changing initiatives locally and nationally. From donating supplies and building new treatment rooms to funding electronic medical record systems and partnering with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, our goal is to support children and families with special needs however we can.

Not A Statistic

In 2013, Filmmaker Shelby Hadden spent some time with our family to document our daily life and struggle with mitochondrial disease, our fight to find a cure, and our passion to make a difference in the lives of others fighting disease and disability. Preview the trailer by clicking the video to the right.
