Walk 4 Hope 2021….. we remain hopeful

Given the current COVID developments, we thought it important to provide you with an event update.

We are still working towards our scheduled dates in September for Walk 4 Hope. We will continue to monitor the situation and work closely with the NSW Government in the lead up. If we are required to implement any changes, we will notify you as soon as possible on the status of the event and your options should this eventuate.

Please sign up for Walk 4 Hope, choose the location and date that suits you best and get your family, friends, and colleagues to sign up with you. The Walk is an important event for people within the HD community. Not only does it allow us to fundraise much needed funds, but it allows families to come together and support one another, and it is a short 4km walk that can be done at any pace. If we are unable to physically get together it is important to keep active and create awareness in our own neighbourhoods. Be seen – wear pink and green.

Summer Foundation report on effective housing and support models

Published date: 19 July, 2022

People with Huntington’s disease require high levels of specialised care in order for them to manage daily living tasks. Specialised housing for people with Huntington’s disease in Australia is limited. This is in part due to a lack of funding and in part due to a lack of appropriate facilities. For many people, this means that their only option is to live in residential aged care (RAC). Living in RAC is generally not appropriate given that the environment often has a lack of age-appropriate activities, and social interaction.
