About Barker's Battle Run

The 2020 Barker's Battle Run is being postponed due to COVID-19 - stay tuned for our new date!

We hope you can still support this event. HSC relies heavily on the money raised through fundraising events. Your continued support at this difficult time will ensure we are still able to provide funding to world-leading research into treatments for Huntington disease, as well as vital support services to individuals and families affected by Huntington disease.

All donations and contributions made to our event before September 30 are still matched by an anonymous donor dollar for dollar! Please consider a donation today!

If you have questions, please reach out to susanwalsh36@hotmail.com or sherrilynnlewis@live.ca or the National Office Events Team at events@huntingtonsociety.ca or review HSC’s website.
