Due to an abudance of caution, we have decided to turn our Miami Team Hope Walk/Run into a virtual event. This is in an effort to keep our community safe from COVID-19.

For this virtual event, runners/walkers can participate anywhere in the World and will run a 5K (3.1 miles), 10K (6.2) course of their choosing between Sunday, October 10th and midnight on Wednesday, October 20th via the RaceJoy app. The run can be done anytime and anyplace. Walkers are welcome to walk 1 mile wherever they choose! All walkers who register at the $30 level will receive a 2021 HDSA Team Hope Walk Shirt. 

The funds raised from this event will support our local South Florida Chapter and support the Huntington’s Disease community in Florida, our Centers of Excellence at the University of Florida in Gainesville, The Miller School of Medicine at the University of Miami, and The University of South Florida in Tampa.

Join us virtually throughout the week as we share pictures with your printable bib, videos and support from the community on our Facebook Page

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.
