Around 8000 people in the UK have Huntington's disease with a further 32000 estimated at high risk of inheriting it.
#HD8000 is a fundraising initiative aimed at raising funds for our work, ensuring we can continue to make a difference to people affected by Huntington’s disease. Throughout the year we’re asking everyone to support #HD8000 by getting involved in different and exciting challenges.
We’re calling on supporters to step forward for the 8000 people living with Huntington’s disease throughout Huntington’s Disease Awareness Month this May. Join us for our new challenge and #tellHDtotakeahike!
There are different ways to get involved in #HDHike, you can organise your own socially-distanced 8km sponsored walk or you can set yourself a challenge of covering 8000 steps per day throughout May.
All we ask is that you aim to raise £100 during #HDHike to help us continue our work supporting people affected by Huntington’s disease.
To take part, simply register by clicking below and navigating to the top right-hand corner of the screen, then countdown to the 1 May 2021 and the start of Huntington’s Disease Awareness Month to get your challenge going!
We can provide fundraising materials, t-shirts, banners, balloons and badges so do get in touch with our fundraising team if you would like any of these items free of charge. Contact [email protected].
We’d love you to be a part #HD8000 but if physical challenges aren't your thing, there are lots of other ways that you can fundraise for us. If you would like to organise your own fundraising event let us know, we’d love to help you organise it! Get in touch with us at [email protected].
Thank you to all members of #TeamHDA who have helped us this far, with your support we will be here for people affected by Huntington’s disease for years to come.
