Team Hope Walk at Ellsworth High School This Sunday
Huntington's Disease Society of America (HDSA) announces the Maine Team Hope Walk.
This is the largest fundraising event of the year. And it occurs each and every year in an effort to support the fight to improve the lives of people affected with Huntington's Disease.
When and Where
This Sunday October 9th at Ellsworth High School.
Registration and pre walk activies begin at 9:30 a.m. The walk starts at 11 a.m. Registration for adults is $30 and includes a T-Shirt. $15 for children, and also includes a T-Shirt.
And all donations go towards HDSA,
This event happens in over 100 cities across America and more than $20 million has been raised so far, since 2007.
Huntington's disease is a fatal genetic disease that affects nerve cells in the brain. And has no cure. That's why it is so crucial to walk the walk, and talk the talk, meaning raise the much needed funds to improve the lives of those affected, and to provide hope for tomorrow.
Nancy Patterson, Chairperson for the event says
We’re excited that we will be together at Team Hope, taking a stand to improve the lives of everyone affected by HD.
Family, friends, co-workers, neighbors all walk as community for this event. Here's more information about the walk in Ellsworth for this weekend, on Sunday.
