All funds raised in Calvin's honor will be paid directly to the Pitt Hopkins Research Foundation to accelerate progress toward effective treatments and ultimately a cure for PTHS by funding the most promising research.
Calvin is a sweet, outgoing, smart 7 year old from Los Angeles, CA. But Calvin has a rare genetic disorder called Pitt Hopkins Syndrome, and while his potential is great, he is extremely challenged by the devastating effects of this syndrome. He cannot walk or talk, he has sensory issues, ataxia, and autistic traits. Imagine autism, parkinson's and cerebral palsy all rolled into one disease— that is what Calvin battles every day. Calvin attends first grade at St. Paul’s First Lutheran Church, an all inclusion classroom. He excels in every subject material: spelling, journaling, and especially math. Calvin has told us many times that he wants to be a mathematician when he grows up!
Calvin’s Crew Socks will benefit the Pitt Hopkins Research Foundation, which was co-founded by his parents, Audrey and Eric to raise money to find a cure. In the short five years that The Pitt Hopkins Research Foundation has been open, we have raised nearly 3 million dollars and funded scientists all over the world! Just like Calvin works every day to reach his goals, we will never stop fighting to reach ours—treatments and cure for this debilitating syndrome.
Warm up your feet –and hearts—for Calvin and his Pitt Hopkins buddies with these stylish crew socks! Proceeds go to treatments and finding a cure to the debilitating effects for Pitt Hopkins Syndrome.
Made in North Carolina, Calvin's Crew socks are made with a mixture of cotton and polyester and are great walks and runs! They are crew length and sit just below the calf.
Orders will ship approximately four weeks from the conclusion of the campaign. Once the campaign has ended, there will be a limited amount of inventory available for purchase.
Why the delay? Because each design has a different level of demand, we use a fundraising period to determine how many pairs to produce.
