The Huntington’s Disease Society of America (HDSA) is proud to announce the 11th Annual Run to Cure HD (www.runtocurehd.com), a competitive 5K race, 5K fun run/walk and Kids K run. The event will be held Saturday, November 3, at Constellation Field, Home of the Sugar Land Skeeters in Sugar Land. Event proceeds support HDSA’s fight to improve the lives of people affected by HD and their families. Sugar Land’s very own, Jacquie Baly will host and emcee the event.
“We’re very excited to move the race to Constellation Field this year,” says Run to Cure HD committee member Billy Levy. “By making this change, we can finally offer our runners a closed course, more activities in the Post Race Party, and a bigger and better run. The finish line is at home plate so everyone will see themselves on the Jumbotron as they cross the finish!”
Huntington’s disease (HD) is a devastating, hereditary, degenerative brain disorder that results in a loss of cognitive, behavioral and physical control, and for which, presently, there is no treatment or cure. HD slowly diminishes the affected individual’s ability to walk, think, talk and reason.
The fee to register for the Run to Cure HD is $25 through race day. Online registration is available at www.runtocurehd.com through October 31 at 8 p.m. Walk up registration will be available at all Packet Pickup locations starting November 1.
