ONE RACE. ONE REASON. TO FIND A CURE.
The Huntington’s Disease Triathlon is one of the few races in the world which is operated by a not-for-profit organization. The event is organized solely by volunteers and all proceeds from the race support research aimed at treating and curing Huntington’s disease.
2019 marks the 28th Anniversary of the Huntington’s Disease Triathlon. Huntington’s disease is a fatal genetic disorder that leads to the progressive degeneration of nerve cells in the brain resulting in the deterioration of a person’s physical and mental abilities. Today, there are 30,000 symptomatic American’s with HD and more that 200,000 at risk for inheriting the disease. The symptoms of HD have been described as having ALS, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s simultaneously. Every child of a parent with HD has a 50% chance of carrying the faulty gene that causes HD. It has no cure. Your suppport may help to find a cure and allow me to participate it this very worthy event.
