“Every year I get excited for the SF Bay Area Chapter Team Hope Walks. It’s an opportunity for HD families to come together as a community to find support and draw strength from each other while supporting HDSA in the battle against HD.” – Therese Crutcher-Marin, Event Chair & Chapter President.
Team Hope is HDSA’s largest national grassroots fundraising event, which takes place in over 100 cities across the U.S. and has raised more than $24 million for Huntington’s disease since its inception in 2007. Thousands of families, friends, co-workers, neighbors, and communities walk together each year to support HDSA’s mission to improve the lives of people affected by Huntington’s disease and their families.
Huntington’s disease is a fatal genetic disease that affects the nerve cells in the brain and is often described as having ALS, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s disease all at once. Today, there are approximately 41,000 symptomatic Americans and more than 200,000 at risk of inheriting the disease.
