Belleville Walk

About Belleville Walk

Join the Belleville Area as we walk for Huntington disease (HD) this May alongside Huntington Society of Canada (HSC) chapters and participants Nationwide.  ​​

This year, the Belleville walk will be in-person as well as virtual!  Choose to join us live on May 28th at the Jane Forrester Park or walk virtually in your own neighbourhood.  Regardless of how you choose to participate, be sure to track all kilometers you travel throughout May to help us reach our 4,000km national goal!  We know we can do it by making walking a habit and encouraging friends and family to join us.

Our collective efforts will help to raise funds and awareness for HD not only in Belleville, but all across Canada. Together we can make a difference!
