Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!
For my 2nd NYC Marathon and 5th overall, I will be running to help those with Huntington's Disease and to find a cure!
Huntington's Disease (HD) affects tens of thousands nationally and many more world-wide. For those that do not know it, many describe HD as having ALS, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s all at the same time. Today, there are approximately 30,000 symptomatic Americans and more than 200,000 at-risk of inheriting the disease.
For more information, please check out the video here on the page or go to www.hdsa.org
The Huntington's Disease Society of America is the premier nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of everyone affected by Huntington’s disease. From community services and education to advocacy and research, HDSA is the world’s leader in providing help for today and hope for tomorrow for people with Huntington’s disease and their families.
HDSA's network of chapters, affiliates, HDSA Centers of Excellence, social workers and support groups provides a seamless connection for help, education and outreach to HD families and health care professionals across the United States.
All funds raised will help support HDSA's Mission of helping those affected by HD and their families.
