Huntington’s Disease Society of America (HDSA) Chapters/Affiliates have hosted Team Hope Walks across the United States for years. What is Huntington’s disease?
Since their inception in 2007, Team Hope Walks have occurred in over 100 different cities and have raised more $18 million for the cause. What is Team Hope Walk?
A group of Huntington’s disease (HD) advocates, in the San Francisco Bay Area, and myself are hosting a Team Hope Walk and adding a 10K Timed Run. The event is the San Jose Team Hope 5K Walk and 10K Timed Run.
We added the Timed Run to bring in folks from outside the HD community to heighten HD awareness and also raise more money to help in the fight against this horrific disease.
DATE: June 22, Saturday.
RUNNERS can pick up their bibs at Sports Basement in Campbell on Friday, June 21, from 5-9 pm. Or the next morning.
TIME: Check-in starts at 8 am. 10K Runners start at 9 am and Walkers at 9:15 am.
We Can Never Lose HOPE………..
I’m a Huntington’s disease advocate having lost my three sisters-in-law, Lora, Marcia and Cindy to this horrific disease. Watching Their Dance: Three Sisters, a Genetic Disease and Marrying into a Family At Risk for Huntington’s is a nonfiction book that I published and 100% of the proceeds are being donated to the nonprofit, HDSA. You can find it on many book websites like Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/Watching-Their-Dance
