A Chico Fundraiser to Fight Huntington’s Disease

If you haven’t been to Chico California, make a day of it starting with the HDSA Chico Team Hope Walk.  Then after the fundraiser, check out Sierra Nevada Brewing Company in Chico, take a tour and also have lunch or dinner at their restaurant.  https://sierranevada.com/beer/

The Chico Team Hope Walk begins 9 a.m. and the cost is $25.00 and if you registered by 4-1-19, you will receive a T-shirt.

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, Huntington’s disease (HD). HDSA is a premier nonprofit improving the lives of everyone affected by Huntington’s disease.

All proceeds support HDSA’s mission to improve the lives of people affected by HD and their families. http://www.hdsa.org

Huntington’s disease (HD) is a fatal genetic disorder that causes the progressive breakdown of nerve cells in the brain. It deteriorates a person’s physical and mental abilities during their prime working years and has no cure. HD is known as the quintessential family disease because 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. #HDSA

John and I will be helping with the event and I’ll also be selling my nonfiction book, Watching Their Dance, at the event. 100% of the profit is being donated to HDSA. So far, I’ve gifted $14,100.00 to HDSA.
