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, according to the organization.

All proceeds support HDSA’s mission to improve the lives of people affected by HD and their families. Since its inception in 2007, Team Hope Walks have occurred in over 100 different cities and have raised more $18 million for the cause according to the organization.
