The NY-NJ Region of the Huntingtons Disease Society of America (HDSA) will be hosting the First Annual Ann's 5K Race and Kids Fun Run Team Hope event on May 18, 2013 at Klumpp park. The Team Hope program is HDSAs largest grassroots event, being held on over 85 cities across the country. All proceeds support HDSAs fight to improve the lives of people affected by Huntington's Disease (HD) and their families. Ann's 5K was started to honor a brave woman, Ann Tripp, and her struggle with HD. She has always held onto the kite strings" for her family so they could move on and live life to the fullest. They want Ann to know they are holding onto to that kite string for her as she smiles everyday dealing with this debilitating disease.

Trophies will be awarded to top 3 male & female runners and medals for top 3 in each age group. A special trophy will also be awarded to the top fundraiser.

Registration begins at 7:30am and the race kick off beings at 9:00am. The HDSA is asking for support of the community to become a sponsor, form a team, donate products, or volunteer to coordinate the event activities. Registration is available through our website: Team Hope is a fun, family-friendly event.

Huntington's disease (HD) is a devastating, hereditary, degenerative brain disorder that results in a loss of cognitive, behavioral and physical control, and for which, presently, there is no cure and only one FDA-approved treatment for a symptom of HD. HD slowly diminishes the affected individual's ability to walk, think, talk and reason. Symptoms usually appear in an individual between 30 and 50 years of age and progress over a 10 to 25 year period.  Cases of juvenile HD have been diagnosed in children as young as two years of age.  Eventually, a person with HD becomes totally dependent upon others for his or her care. More than 30,000 people in the United States are currently diagnosed with HD.  Each of their siblings and children has a 50 percent risk of developing the disease, therefore 250,000 are at risk.  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.
