Walk 4 Hope 2019

Huntington’s NSW ACT helps and supports families who are impacted by Huntington's disease (HD).

HD creates a ripple effect throughout families and their communities. Multiple generations may have inherited the disease, thus impacting on the whole family.   The Walk 4 Hope was created in 2014 with the aim to raise both awareness and funds to support families impacted by HD.

Walk Locations

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 some 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

Create your own online fundraising page 

In just a few minutes you can build and customise your page with your story and photos. Share the link with your friends, family and colleagues and ask them to donate or even join your Walk 4 Hope team. Every donation is then recorded on your fundraising page with messages of support from your donors. The receipting is already done for you and you can send messages of thanks to your supporters.
