Family is at the heart of our community. Our families and volunteers tell a powerful story of caring people who pull together to improve the quality of life for Canadians impacted by HD. Huntington disease (HD) is a fatal hereditary brain disorder with devastating effects on both the mind and body. It is like having the symptoms of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and ALS all in one disease.
The good news is, with recent medical breakthroughs many researchers and scientists believe that once we are successful in stopping the progression of HD we may also find the answers to many other neurological diseases. Your valued support will bring us one step closer to this goal.
Our walk is on May 25th from 10-2 at Hamilton Park (across from the skate park). This year we are offering a 1k walk and 5k run as well as a party in the park following with a bbq, live music and kids games.
