About BC Walk

EVENT POSTPONED- STAY TUNED FOR NEW DATE


The Huntington Society of Canada takes the safety of our staff, volunteers and community members very seriously. We believe, above all else, that organizations and events must play a role in reducing the spread of the COVID-19 outbreak.

In consultation with the National Office, the BC Chapter has made the necessary decision to postpone the BC Huntington Heroes Walk to a future date.

We hope you can still support this event. HSC relies heavily on the money raised through fundraising events each Spring. 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 June 30 will be matched by an anonymous donor dollar for dollar!

If you have questions, please reach out to nantel858@gmail.com, the National Office Events Team at events@huntingtonsociety.ca or review HSC’s website https://www.huntingtonsociety.ca/novel-coronavirus-covid-19-and-huntington-disease-what-you-should-know/
