About Barrie Run/Walk to Cure HD

The Barrie Walk is Going VIRTUAL!

Walk with us in your own community!

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!

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


As we are unable to come together physically this year due to COVID-19, it is more important than ever to rally as a community and support the families of Huntington disease.  

Join us on October 17 for a virtual run/walk! Register below!

Your registration also counts you for the Huntington Heroes National Virtual Walk!

Let's stand together as we walk apart!

We will be walking on the same day to make this a community event that we can do independently in support of the Huntington Society of Canada (HSC). Under current provincial guidelines, we encourage you to invite up to 100 friends and family, at appropriate social distance, to walk with you in your neighbourhood.

Let's see your check-ins!

We would love to see everyone share their photos through social media as you complete your walk. Use the hashtag #BarrieWalk4HD and don't forget to wear an HD T-Shirt or other outfit so your neighbours know what you're up to! 

Date: October 17, 2020
