2020 Madison WI Team Hope Walk/TIMED 5K & 2K Run
Donate & Register to walk virtually this year. While we can’t be together, we can come together to keep talking about HD and supporting the important work happening right now. You choose your own course, your own time, and your own fundraising goal.
Team Hope Walks aim to raise as much money possible in the local community to support the mission and services of the Huntington’s Disease Society of America. There are many different fundraising strategies you may use to have a successful fundraising campaign, and HDSA suggests you use all of them! To download the Team Hope Walk Participant Packet and check out the Team Hope website’s Fundraising Tips & Tools (including some fundraising webinars!) and Participant Resources sections.
The course will be open from 10am – 2pm. Feel free to check in at anytime in that 4 hour window. All volunteers will be masked, and we ask that all participants to be masked as well.
Once you arrive you will pick up a course map, follow the course and then have your photo taken. On the course please maintain a distance of greater than 6 feet from anybody who lives outside of your household.
We are discouraging spending time at the pavilion after the event

What is Huntington’s Disease?
Huntington’s disease 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 usually during their prime working years and has no cure. Every child of a parent with HD has a 50/50 chance of inheriting the faulty gene that causes the disease. Today, there are approximately 40,000 symptomatic Americans and more than 200,000 at-risk of inheriting the disease. Huntington’s disease is described as having ALS, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s – simultaneously. HD is characterized by a triad of symptoms, including progressive motor dysfunction, behavioral disturbance and cognitive decline.
