LOCAL CHARITY SUPPORTING CASTLE HOWARD TRIATHLON IN JULY.

Huntington’s disease (HD) is a devastating, degenerative neurological disorder that causes progressive mental deterioration, significant behavioural changes and severe physical incapacity. It is a completely disabling hereditary condition that affects generations upon generations of families. Each child of a parent with HD has a 50% chance of inheriting the faulty gene; it doesn’t skip a generation, so if a child tests positive they will, at some stage, develop HD. It’s like tossing a coin.

The Huntington’s Disease Association (HDA) is the only organisation providing a dedicated service of advice, guidance and support for people in England and Wales who are devastated by Huntington’s disease.

We run a regional Specialist HD Advisory service to support those directly affected by the disease, and their families and carers, delivered by our HD experts and tailored to the individual needs of the families we work with.

We are delighted to have been selected as a charity partner for the Castle Triathlon Series. If you want help and support with fundraising please contact our events team by emailing: events@hda.org.uk or calling 0151 331 5445
