Walk 4 Hope Year 5

Huntington’s NSW ACT helps and supports people who are impacted by Huntington's disease (HD). The Walk 4 Hope began in 2014 at Parramatta & Speers Point, in the following year Canberra and Orange.

Why a Walk?

Isolation is experienced by many people and with that in mind the walk was purposely designed to be inclusive for everyone to take part in their very own Walk 4 Hope. It is an opportunity for families and friends to come together, to share their stories and to know they are not alone in their battle with HD. 

Why September?

September is Huntington’s Awareness Month and a great time to get more community involvement and awareness.

Huntington’s NSW ACT supports families in NSW and the ACT.  Thanks to the donations we receive from the Walk 4 Hope we can now reach out to young people and offer some real support through our Youth Connection Program.

When you sign up for Walk 4 Hope, you can choose the location and date that suits you best.

You can even make it a team event and do some other activities in September. Set yourself some challenges and get donations along the way to keep you going.

  • Go Casual Day or Dress up Day “Be Seen Wear Pink & Green” at work with colleagues donating to Huntington’s NSW ACT through your Walk 4 Hope challenge
  • Challenge your workmates to join you on the walk
  • Ask your local gym to get involved, do a spin class for HD
  • Get some walking buddies together, set yourselves a challenge.   Aim for ½ an hour walk each day and ask them all to sign up as a team, encourage them to obtain their own sponsors for Walk 4 Hope
  • 10,000 steps a day in September translates to 300,000 steps!
  • Post your challenge to your social media network such as Face Book and Instagram
  • Share your photos and stories

In just a few minutes you can build and customise your page with your story and photos.
