Help Elijah build MightE1 camps for disabled kids

Elijah Walters Is 14-year-old battling Legg-Calve-Perthes Disease since May 2015, Walters is an all-around competitive athlete who is in his freshman year at Loveland High School. Walters brings a rare combination as a three-sport athlete, competing in football, basketball and baseball, who also possesses courage, determination and a fighting spirit to tackle everything Perthes Disease can throw at him.
 
Perthes Disease is a rare childhood condition in which blood flow is restricted to the rounded head of the femur. Without proper blood flow, the bone cells die, causing the hip to collapse, fragment and disintegrate.
 
"Elijah is an inspiring young man with a competitive drive and we're blessed to have him join the Norse men's basketball team," said Horn. "Elijah's personal journey has been filled with courage, resiliency and determination that serves as a model for everyone. I'm grateful to have Elijah as part of our team and look forward to supporting him in his battle to beat Perthes Disease."
 
Since his diagnosis four and a half years ago, Walters has undergone 15 surgeries and more than 300 physical therapy sessions. With his fighter's spirit, Walters has continued to defy the odds and even set foot on the field this year for the freshman football team at Loveland HS as a quarterback.

Through his painful journey Elijah saw an opportunity to help other kids battling disabilities in the same way he was blessed by being part of a team. So Elijah has started MightE1 sports camps for kids with disabilities to do what every kid desires play sports as part of a team with professional athletes. Every kid deserves a chance to be celebrated and to understand that the challenges they face are an opportunity to become a champion. Your help may not save a kids life, but it will undoubtably change their life....Please donate today to help a child understand they are a Might•E1.
