Max died at the age of 6 from complications from meningitis. His family started Max’s Race in his memory.

I race because The Davies Project is so important to me. They help get our families and patients to appointments. So I look at it as a continuum. Patients may be in the hospital and then they need the care and follow up from our clinics and Peds rehab to continue to get healthy, be healthy, learn about their conditions and stay out of the hospital. So The Davies Project is a big piece of the care, getting patients in and families to appointments.
