We are Team Richard, friends and family supporting Richard Ashford, who was diagnosed with Huntington's Disease 13 years ago. We also raise money to support research to end the disease - along with over 200,000 other Americans at risk, Richard's sons Grant and Geoffrey have a 50% chance of inheriting the gene that causes Huntington's Disease.
Huntington's Disease is a fatal genetic disorder that causes the progressive breakdown of nerve cells in the brain. It has been described as having Parkinsons, ALS and Alzheimers all at the same time. There currently is no cure - although there are several promising research trials currently in the second and third phases. Your past and present support has played a part in making it all possible!
Team Richard has been walking in Team Hope for eleven years, and we are grateful for the continued support of our family and friends, particularly the three sisters-in-law who fundraise and fly out from California each year.
Please walk with us by joining our team and help make a difference! If you cannot walk with us, please consider making a donation to our fundraising page by clicking the "Support Us" button.
Thank you for your support, it means a lot to our family.
