2nd Annual Team Hope Walk

A walk and fundraiser in Landreth Park raises awareness for a deadly disease.
 
About 100 people took part in the 2nd annual Team Hope Walk.  The event was started to benefit people who currently have Huntington's Disease.
 
Huntington's Disease is a hereditary brain disorder.  Those who have it experience a progressive loss of physical and mental abilities over a 10 to 15 year period.
 
Team Hope Walk Director Darrin Henry said 30,000 people across the country have the disease.
And hopes today's event can raise $12,000. 
 
"Contribute back to the HDSA, which is Huntington's Disease Society of America, so they can use this for research to help find a cure for Huntington's Disease," Henry said.    
 
"Makes me feel grateful and super.   Because every little bit helps.  People helping makes huge changes," Linn Pinjuv said.    
 
Henry said 250,000 people in the U.S. are at risk of getting Huntington's Disease.
