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 Huntington’s disease (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.  

“I am so grateful that every year the community support keeps growing and those facing the challenges of HD are able  to continue getting the help that they need,” said Jaime Lattin, event coordinator. “By participating in both our small  and large events, whether it be in-person or virtual, the connections made are so meaningful and give me so much hope  for a future where Huntington’s Disease no longer exists.” 

For more information about the event, please contact Jaime Lattin (j[email protected], 239-222-7634). Online  registration and donation can be found at hdsa.org/thwflorida 

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