This is a fundraiser for the nonprofit, Huntington's Disease Society of America (HDSA) whose mission is dedicated to improving the lives of everyone with Huntington's disease (HD). HD is a rare, fatal, genetic brain disorder that has the symptoms of ALS, Alzheimers and Parkinson's at the same time. It strikes during prime working years and affects children and adults. Only 41,000 in the U.S. have the disease and 200,000+ live at risk.
There is NO CURE!

Community folks will dress their dogs in Halloween costumes along with themselves and their children. There will be a raffle, and many costume contests with prizes. Participants can walk their dogs along a path at Shollenberger Park in Petaluma.


Volunteers will help with setup/tear down, registration and the contest for the best dog costume. Volunteers will also be on the 5K trail directing folks with their dogs and children.
