HDSA Fundraising events

Therese’s Book Tour-Part 2

(continued from Sept. 7 blog)

On June 14th, 2017 John and I arrived at our first stop, Lenexa Kansas to attend our first HDSA Team HOPE Walk on June 17th. I was thrilled to visit Kansas, the state I grew up in and where I still had many relatives living. Aunt Trina and my cousins participated in the walk with us and we had a blast together.

I congratulate Paige Kesler for organizing the walk which raised $11,703.00.  job!  https://hdsa.donordrive.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.event&eventID=1083 

All dollars from HDSA Chapter fundraisers are sent to HDSA Corporate in NY to fulfill the HDSA Mission:  “Improve the lives of everyone affected by Huntington’s” disease”.

I sold 11 books at this walk, $7.00 per book is donated, which equates to $77.00, so I rounded up and donated $100.00 to the event.

Therese’s memoir/nonfiction book, Watching Their Dance: Three Sisters, a Genetic Disease and Marrying into a Family At Risk for Huntington’s, is available on her author website  http://www.theresecrutchermarin.com   & on Amazon, B&N, & in Kindle, Kobo, Nook, & iBooks format.

We can never lose HOPE……………Therese
