The Huntington's Disease Society of America's (HDSA) Tennessee Chapter is hosting the Tennessee Virtual Team Hope Walk on Saturday, November 7. A virtual walk is a real walk, but on your terms: You get to choose your own course, you can walk in your driveway, local park, neighborhood, in your house, and even on treadmill.
Team Hope is 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 Huntington's Disease (HD) and their families. HD is a fatal genetic disease that affects the nerve cells in the brain.
This would be a great event to cover as we need to talk more about this disease in the news to show others they are not alone in this fight. In Tennessee, the total HD population is more than 6,000.
Join us November 7, 2020
While things are different and we can't be together, Team Hope Walk can still come together to keep talking about HD and supporting the important work happening right now!
Team Hope Walk is HDSA's largest signature grassroots event and your continued support in this fight against HD has never been more important.
