We are quickly approaching the 30th Annual Huntington's Disease Triathlon! This is a completely volunteer organized event, and 100% of proceeds go directly towards research for a cure for Huntington's Disease. Without our dedicated volunteers, this event would not be possible!

We hope you can join us this year on Sunday, February 27 th, 2022 at Larry and Penny Thompson Park located at: 12451 Eureka Drive , Miami, FL 33177.

We are in need of volunteers for both Saturday, February 26 th for set up and Sunday, February 27 that the triathlon. There are many positions available from set up, breakdown, body marking, water stations, direction personnel and more.

This is a great opportunity for students to earn volunteer hours for school.

Mission Statement

The Huntington's Disease Society of America (HDSA) is dedicated to finding a cure for Huntington's Disease (HD) while providing support and services for those living with HD and their families. HDSA promotes and supports both clinical and basic HD research, aids families in coping with the multi-faceted problems presented by HD and educates the families, the public and health care professionals about Huntington's Disease. Our HD families give a face to Huntington's Disease. HDSA is its voice.

Description

Huntington's Disease (HD) is an inherited, progressively degenerative brain disorder that results in a loss of both mental faculties and physical control. Symptoms usually appear in an individual between 30-50 years of age and progress over a 10-25 year period. HD affects the individuals ability to think, speak and walk. Ultimately, the weakened individual succumbs to pneumonia, heart failure or other complications. Presently, there is no effective treatment or cure. Although medications can relieve some symptoms in certain individuals, research has yet to find a means of conquering or even slowing the deadly progression of HD.
