ORGANIZATION: Huntington's Disease Society of America

Team Hope Walk

Team Hope Walk is HDSA’s signature grass-roots fundraising event which takes place in over 100 communities across the country. Every year, thousands of families, friends, co-workers, neighbors and other constituents come together to walk, raise awareness and the much-needed funds to further our mission. Team Hope Walk brings those affected by Huntington’s disease together as well as those that just want to be a part of something bigger than themselves in their community. It’s a truly meaningful experience.

The Team Hope Walk committee is led by a Volunteer Event Coordinator or Co-Coordinators. The Coordinator(s) act as project managers and the Team Hope Walk committee makes logistic plans, finds sponsors, engages the HD community to participate, and works with HDSA staff to reach our fundraising goals. We are in need of help for our Arkansas Team Hope Walk.

Walk Coordinator- Help manage event logistics, and keep the walk committee team on track.

About Huntington's Disease Society of America

Location:

505 8th Ave., Suite 902, New York, NY 10018, US

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.
