About Southern Alberta Hope for a Cure Run/Walk

12th Annual Hope for a Cure VIRTUAL Run & Walk

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

Join us on June 27 at 10:00 a.m. (or a time of your choice) for a virtual run/walk!

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). We encourage you to use some kind of tool to track your kilometers and to stay connected with your team, friends and family via video call.

Suggested Kilometer Trackings Apps:

If participating in the 5 km walk- Map my walk

If participating in the 5 km or 10 km run - Map my run

Suggested apps for staying connected: Facebook messenger, Zoom, House Party

Feel free to use whatever app you would like, if you prefer a different one, this is NOT REQUIRED to participate, just makes it a little more fun!

Let's see your check-ins!

We would love to see everyone share their photos through Facebook and Instagram of them doing their independent walk using the hashtag #hoperunHD and wearing one of your Hope for a Cure Run & Walk T-Shirts so we can all stay connected to our community, team, friends and family on walk day!
