Ask anyone who has met Calvin Lapidus and they will universally comment about his infectious smile.  Cal has the greatest smile I’ve ever seen.  Laughter and smiles are common for children with Pitt Hopkins Syndrome (PTHS).  But these smiles mask the struggle that each child and their family engages in on a daily basis.  PTHS is an extremely rare genetic disorder, characterized by developmental delay, seizures, lack of speech and other sensory disorders. It is considered an Autism Spectrum Disorder and many researchers believe that curing PTHS will lead to cures of similar disorders.  The Pitt Hopkins Research Foundation (PHRF) supports researchers dedicated to finding a treatment and, eventually, a cure.  Their motto is “We don’t just hope for miracles.  We fight for them.”  Please join our fight!

The inaugural PHRF Open, hosted by the family of Calvin Lapidus, seeks to raise funds to support the Pitt Hopkins Research Foundation for boys and girls like Calvin. 96% of every dollar raised by the PHRF goes directly to research.

On Saturday, September 23rd, please join us at the Rancho Park Par 3 Golf Course for an afternoon of golf, fun and friends.  Sponsorship opportunities are available.
