HDSA Philadelphia Team Hope Walk Returns October 22

Philadelphia –The Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter of the Huntington’s Disease Society of America (HDSA) will host the Philadelphia Team Hope Walk on Saturday, October 22nd at 10:00 AM at League Island Park: The Navy Yard. All proceeds support HDSA’s mission to improve the lives of people affected by Huntington’s disease (HD) and their families.

“What I love best about the Team Hope Walks is to see the HD community come together,” said Virginia Goolkasian, HDSA’s Northeast Regional Development Officer. “At the beginning and end of the walk, when participants gather, it has the feel of a family reunion, complete with hugs and smiles among teams who walk each year, and it is a warm welcome to newcomers who no longer feel alone in the fight against HD. For everyone, it is a feeling of empowerment as they see an army of people coming together to make a difference.” 

Team Hope is HDSA’s largest national grassroots fundraising event, which takes place in over 100 cities across the U.S. and has raised more than $20 million for HD since its inception in 2007. Thousands of families, friends, co-workers, neighbors, and communities walk together each year to support HDSA’s mission to improve the lives of people affected by HD and their families.
