Walk 4 Hope Virtual Launch

This year we are again impacted by COVID-19 but still need you to Walk 4 Hope. With almost half of our income (excluding NDIS) coming from fundraising activities like the Walk 4 Hope, we are relying on you to register and show your support. The Walk 4 Hope is the difference between shrinking or growing our programs.

The #Walk4Hope2021 is going virtual. The best part is that you can participate from wherever you are! The dates have been set, let’s be seen – wear pink and green.

  • Canberra Sunday 12 September
  • Orange Saturday 18 September
  • Speers Point Sunday 19 September
  • Parramatta Sunday 26 September

Even though we are physically unable to get together it is important that we keep active and create awareness of HD in our own neighbourhoods. You may like to set yourself a distance challenge, maybe the 4km walk that you registered for or maybe 40km throughout the month. Perhaps you can set a challenge with a friend or family member and compete virtually.

All registrations are tax deductible this year, and we need you to get your contacts going to support your charity.

Fees for the Walk

  • Family (2 adults and 2 children) $50
  • Adult (18+ years) $25
  • Child (4 to 17 years) $10
  • Infant (0 to 3 years) complimentary

Distance for the Walk

Now that we are virtual there is no limit on how far you walk. You can walk the 4km, as planned, or you can walk 10km or even 40km throughout the month of September. We have set a goal of 100 walkers doing 4km each. But let’s see if we can beat that.

How can I participate?

  • Register to Walk 4 Hope and support families affected by HD
  • Donate to Walk 4 Hope and support a person doing the walk
  • Contact us to purchase Walk 4 Hope merchandise. We have shirts, hats, drink bottles and pins.

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.
