Team Hope Walks aim to raise as much money possible in the local community to support the mission and services of the Huntington’s Disease Society of America. There are many different fundraising strategies you may use to have a successful fundraising campaign, and HDSA suggests you use all of them!

THIS CHANGE IN FORMAT ALIGNS WITH THE NEWLY RELEASED CDC GUIDANCE FOR LARGE EVENTS, TO HELP ENSURE THE SAFETY AND HEALTH OF OUR PARTICIPANTS.
Step 1. Register, Invite Friends, Family and Coworkers
A virtual walk is a real walk, but on your terms. You get to choose your own course. Now you can take part wherever you are…from the comfort and safety of your own home, around your yard, or even your neighborhood (following social distance guidelines, of course). Sign up now and participate in our virtual walk kickoff to raise money and awareness for HDSA mission programs in your community. All participants registered and funds raised during this virtual kickoff will help us build to our planned event. Invite your family, friends, colleagues and health care providers to join.
Step 2. Whether you walk around the block, the neighborhood, or do a 1K run up & down your street the when, where and how far you walk is up to you. We are walking together all over the country.
Step 3. Supporting HD families is an incredible reason to raise money. But we think you deserve something for your efforts. When you individually raise your first $50, you’ll receive a Team Hope t-shirt (that will be at our event). Please wear last year’s shirt or make your own on your virtual walk. Keep raising funds to be eligible for even more great fundraising rewards/prizes.
Step 4. On Saturday, October 24th, share a photo or video of yourself and use the hashtag #VirtualTeamHopeWalk to let everyone know you are walking for HDSA. You can also tag us @HDSA on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook. And remember—a little thanks goes a long way. Be sure to tag supporters and thank those who have joined you to help you reach your goal!
