Thank you for visiting my personal fundraising page! With your help, we can help HDSA achieve their mission to improve the lives of everyone with Huntington’s disease and their loved ones.
In the face of an (as yet) incurable disease, we want to honor those affected by Huntington’s Disease and their caregivers. It is a hard road for both groups. I hope you will join me in making 2016 the year we get fit and raise awareness about Hungingtons Disease.
How Pump for a Cure Works
We will do one pull up on January 1, 2016. Then two push ups on January 2 and three squats on January 3rd. This circle of love will continue until December 31, 2016. To follow along with the daily workout visit the Pump for a Cure Facebook Page. Together you and I can make the New Years resolution to get in shape and help raise money to fight this horrible fatal genetic disorder. A total of 66,795 individual actions will be done in honor and support of HDSA.
I am doing this in honor of all of those affected by HD, both patients and families. Especially the Krepp Family. Watch their awsome video below and get involved. Together we can make a difference!

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 during their prime working years and has no cure.
HD is known as the quintessential family disease because every child of a parent with HD has a 50/50 chance of carrying the faulty gene. Today, there are 30,000 symptomatic Americans and more than 200,000 at-risk of inheriting the disease.
