The Team Hope Walk program is Huntington’s Disease Society of America’s (HDSA) signature grassroots fundraising campaign designed to provide hope and support for those touched by this devastating disease. All proceeds support HDSA’s mission to improve the lives of people affected by HD and their families. In 2018, 94 Team Hope Walks will be held across the U.S.
Huntington’s disease (HD) is a rare, fatal, genetic brain disorder that is like having ALS, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s at the same time. There is NO CURE. It slowly deteriorates a person’s physical and mental abilities and usually strikes during prime working years. Every child of a parent with HD has a 50/50 chance of carrying the faulty gene. Today, there are approximately 30,000 symptomatic Americans and more than 200,000 at-risk of inheriting the disease. http://www.hdsa.org
