The HD community across Canada is a group of passionate and generous people who aspire to a world free from Huntington disease. This group of people support one another and know that there are few people in the world that fully understand what everyday life is like for a person or family affected by this disease. This makes the HD community unique, this makes them a family.
Thanks to this amazing community, the Huntington Society of Canada receives a large portion of their funds from Chapter and volunteer fundraising efforts to put towards research and family services for affected individuals and families. These fundraising events are integral in allowing HSC to support the HD community. The volunteers who organize events, as well as the participants and sponsors who get pledges and raise money for the cause are a special team in the community; making a difference by not only raising money, but awareness for the disease across the country.
We like to refer to this team as teamHD. TeamHD began as a national running team, the idea being that people could run in marathons and other such events across the country, being united in their fundraising efforts for Huntington disease.
This spirit has spread through the community, and even those who aren’t runners want to be a part of this team. Whether you volunteer, organize, run, walk, bike, or even go-kart, you are a part of our team. We are all working towards the same goal: ending Huntington disease. The more people we have on our team, the closer we get to this goal.
We invite you to participate in this dedicated community any way you can and recruit friends and family to join as well. Let us know what you’re good at! Are you a musician, photographer, writer? TeamHD can use all of your talents to benefit those affected by HD. Our teamHD Facebook page is full of opportunities to get involved and be a part of the team! You can keep up with the community and share your photos and experiences by posting on Facebook or using our hashtag #teamHDcan on Twitter and Instagram. Help spread the word and raise money by joining teamHD!
