Thousands of families, friends, coworkers, neighbors and communities will walk together to improve the lives of those affected by Huntington’s disease.

Get your teams together and register to participate in the Central Illinois Team Hope Walk. Each year, the Illinois Chapter of the Huntington’s Disease Society of America (HDSA) sponsors the walk to be able to provide community services, education, advocacy and research for people with Huntington’s disease and their families. Huntington’s disease is a fatal genetic disorder that causes the progressive breakdown of nerve cells in the brain, deteriorating a person’s physical and mental abilities. There is no cure.

The Central Illinois Team Hope Walk is Sunday, September 11 at Lake Storey Park, located at 1572 Machen Drive, Galesburg. Check-in begins at 9:30 a.m., and the walk steps off at 10:00 a.m. To register or donate, or for more information, click here.
