About the event
The Huntington's Disease Society of America is the premier nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of everyone affected by Huntington’s disease. Huntington's Disease is a fatal genetic disorder that causes the progressive breakdown of nerve cells in the brain and it has no cure. This event is called a Team Hope Walk where the community has the opportunity to rally behind the HDSA to support and improve the quality of life of those affected by this disease.
Why should you sponsor?
Businesses and corporations live on the quality of their image to consumers. If people do not like what a company stands for they will easily boycott it. However, brands that support communities, especially local ones, receive a positive image boost. The best part about supporting local community events is that it is mutually beneficial.
Huntington’s disease (HD) is a fatal genetic disorder that causes the progressive breakdown of nerve cells in the brain. It deteriorates a person’s physical and mental abilities during their prime working years and has no cure. HD is known as the quintessential family disease because every child of a parent with HD has a 50/50 chance of carrying the faulty gene. Many describe the symptoms of HD as having ALS, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s – simultaneously.
This disease is very debilitating, but it is not widely known. We need to promote awareness and raise funds so that this disease is not a death sentence. We need to partner up to take Huntington's Disease down.
