EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -
Many gathered in Carson Park today to raise money to fight Huntington’s Disease.
Despite holding a virtual event earlier this year, the Huntington’s Disease Society of America held its annual Hope Walk in person today.
Participants could choose between a 2K walk or 5K run.
Event organizers say events like this are essential for fundraising especially during the pandemic.
“We didn’t think people would want a live event, but that is what the families asked for because they still wanted to walk or run this course with their families for a cause that is so near and dear to their heart,” says Shana Verstegen, event organizer.
People were encouraged to wear masks and practice social distancing.
