Please join us for the West Michigan Team Hope Walk & 5K Run in Holland on Saturday, June 16th, 2018!

“Please sign up to participate in our 5K or Fun Walk. The 5K is chip timed and open to runners and walkers. We also offer a laid back Fun Walk, approximately 1.5 miles long. Not interested in walking any distance? That’s ok, we would still love to have you join us for a fun filled day - sign up for the Fun Walk anyways! This event is family friendly, and lunch, access to great raffle prizes, and a t-shirt is included with each registration. If you are participating in the 5K, you can also select an option during registration to upgrade from our cotton Team Hope t-shirt, to a Running Tech style Team Hope T-shirt for an additional $15.

We are in need of volunteers at the event! Please contact Camille Colletti at 847-849-0680 if you are able to help!”

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 30,000 symptomatic Americans and more than 200,000 at-risk of inheriting the disease. The symptoms of Huntington’s disease are described as having ALS, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s – simultaneously.

About Team Hope

Thousands of families, friends, co-workers, neighbors and communities walk together each year to support HDSA's fight to improve the lives of people affected by HD and their families.
