Max Chapman

Max Chapman

When Max Chapman was 14 months old, he received the devastating diagnosis of Peroxisomal Biogenesis Disorder (PBD), a very rare disorder that will cause him to lose his sight and hearing and eventually cause life threatening damage to his kidneys, liver, and bones.  Treatments for PBD are very limited and most affected children do not live past the age of 10.   

The Global Foundation for Peroxisomal Disorders (GFPD) was created to fund much needed research around PBD and to support those families facing this horrible disorder.  Recently, they have made some major strides in their understanding of this disease, but additional funding is needed!  Last year, in our inaugural event, we raised nearly $100,000 for the GFPD to help support cutting-edge medical research!  

Please join us as we raise money to support this amazing organization!
