HDSA Tennessee Team Hope Walk GOES VIRTUAL NOV. 7


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.
