The Team Hope Walk is the Huntington's Disease Society of America's (HDSA's) largest national grassroots fundraising event. Thousands of families, friends, co-workers, neighbors and communities walk together each year to support HDSA's fight to improve the lives of people affected by HD and their families.

In 2013, Team Hope Walks will take place in more than 100 cities across the U.S. Since its inception in 2007, Team Hope has raised close to $4 million thanks to the support and tireless commitment from walkers like you.

From forming a team, to sponsoring a walk, to volunteering, you too can help make a difference in so many lives. Join Team Hope Walk for HD, and help us provide help for today, hope for tomorrow!

What is Huntington's Disease? 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 one 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.   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.
