The Northern California Chapter of the Huntington’s Disease Society of America is hosting the 7th Annual Sacramento Team Hope Walk on July 25th, 2015 at William Land Park. This is a fundraiser to raise awareness and money for Huntington’s disease research.
Huntington’s disease is a devastating hereditary neurological disorder that typically presents between the ages of 30 and 50. Over the course of 15-20 years, the patient loses physical and mental function, resulting in terrible financial, social, psychological, and familial strain. The Huntington’s Disease Society of America hosts walks all across the country to raise money to find a cure for this awful disease, and we are fortunate to have one here in Sacramento at Land Park!
Registration for the walk begins at 8AM at the southeast corner of Land Park, with the walk beginning at 9AM. To register as a team, individual, or to make a donation, please visit www.hdsa.org/thwsac. There will be food, kid’s activities, a raffle, music, and free t-shirts for all participants. The top 5 fundraising teams will get their names printed on the back of the shirts. Please visit the Chapter website for further information
