Last year saw an amazing success for the first ‘Walk of Hope’ event and for everyone who took part. Not only did we raise over £9,000 but we received Scotland wide media attention.
Families came together and took on their own personal challenge and certainly made a difference to families affected with Huntington’s disease.
This year we would like to make a BIGGER impact and get more people joining together, not only supporting the walk but enjoying the social space, quality family time, freedom and outdoors.
We would like to welcome more fundraisers to plan a sponsored walk anytime in August. Your support will help raise awareness and funds for a variety of support services helping people living with Huntington’s disease throughout Scotland.
Summer is a lovely time of the year to get outdoors with family, friends, work colleagues or just you in your own space.
You can choose from a walk through a forest or country park. Or, go all out and walk the West Highland Way or climb a Munroe? Scotland is blessed with hundreds of footpaths and cycle tracks; you could do a cycle along the coast! The choice is all yours!
So, whether you raise £50, £500 or £1,000 every penny and pound will be put to good use and this is the difference your support will make…
£3 pays for a 5 minute call that can change a life, £16 provides One to One counselling to a young person affected by HD, £6 buys a handbook for carers, giving them the advice they need, £30 pays for a home visit to someone affected by HD and £465 pays for a young person affected by HD attend residential summer camp.
Once you have decided on your walk, please contact Linda on 0141 848 0308 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to receive your fundraising pack.
