Thank you for joining us for our 2023 Sacramento Team Hope Walk. Whether you supported near or afar - we are so grateful. A special thank you to everyone who sponsored, volunteered, and attended on Saturday morning. Because of your generous support, we had 120 attendees and raised $30k+ for the HD community. Seeing our community together on Saturday provided so much hope for a future free from HD and reminded us that we have our CA family to lean on while we continue the fight. From the bottom of our hearts - THANK YOU!

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 41,000 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.
What is the Huntington’s Disease Society of America?
The Huntington’s Disease Society of America is the premier not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of everyone affected by Huntington’s disease. From community services and education to advocacy and research, HDSA is the world’s leader in providing help for today, hope for tomorrow for people with Huntington’s disease and their families.
