Please join us for the 10th Annual Illinois Team Hope Walk on Sunday, May 18th, 2014!
Help us to continue funding the mission of the Huntingtons Disease Society of America! The past 9 Walks have helped raise over $425,000! Remember: The Walk has been moved to the Naperville Riverwalk in downtown Naperville, Illinois. The Riverwalk offers a walker, wheel chair, wagon, and stroller friendly path. Dogs are very welcome as long as they remain on a leash. Please remember to bring enough non-alcoholic drinks for yourself as well as any dogs you bring along. After the Walk, stick around for our family style hotdog lunch (be sure to bring your lawnchair), games for the kids, great conversation with friends and LIVE MUSIC!. The Riverwalk also offers a playground for the young ones that attend as long as their parents are with them. We will start at the Grand Pavillion at the far west end of the "Beach" parking lot. We hope to see you there!! More information can be found on our chapter website at http://www.hdsa.org/il.
