Runners and walkers of all age and abilities are welcome to take part.

You can register and fundraise online for the event at www.huntingtonsociety.ca, click on ‘Events,’ then ‘Community Event,’ then ‘British Columbia’ and you’ll see the Vernon event.

When you raise pledges for the run, you will be eligible for some unique HSC items:

$100 – Technical TeamHD running shirt;

$300 – Red TeamHD hoodie OR Technical TeamHD running shirt;

$500 – TeamHD jacket OR Red TeamHD hoodie OR Technical TeamHD running shirt.

Thanks to a kind donor, the event impact will be doubled this spring.

Donations received by June 30 will be matched dollar for dollar so the Huntington Society can make double the progress towards providing support for HD families today, and give hope, by changing the course of this disease, for HD families, tomorrow.
