The Pacific Region of the Huntington’s Disease Society of America (HDSA) will host the Portland Virtual Team Hope Walk on Saturday, August 29. Registration will be free. 

A virtual walk is a real walk, but on your terms: You get to choose your own course, you can walk in your driveway, neighborhood, in your house and even on treadmill. All proceeds support HDSA’s mission to improve the lives of people affected by HD and their families. 

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 $14 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.  

For more information about the event, please contact HDSA’s Regional Development Officer Denny Cone ([email protected], 707-449-9119). Online registration and donation can be found at hdsa.org/thwportland.

HDSA's Team Hope Walk Program is nationally sponsored by Genentech and Teva Pharmaceuticals.
