The Walk 4 Hope began in 2014 at Parramatta and Newcastle (Speers Point) and since then it has grown to four different locations. Unfortunately, we have not been able to meet in person and walk for the last two years due to COVID-19. We hope that 2022 is the year we bring back the walk and would love the community to get behind us.

Isolation is experienced by many people affected by Huntington’s disease (HD) and with that in mind the walk was purposely designed to be inclusive for everyone to take part in their very own Walk 4 Hope. It is an opportunity for families and friends to come together, to share their stories and to know they are not alone in their battle with HD.
