Huntington’s Disease Africa (HDA) is organizing a charity run themed “Hope for HD”. Our organization’s mission is to spearhead work on Huntington’s disease in Africa that will result in high quality research, training of professionals and care for affected individuals. The Charity run will take place at Oloolua Nature Trail in Karen on 4th September 2021 and the purpose of this event is to raise awareness about HD and in parallel fundraise for our HD communities’ immediate needs. These needs include:
•Support in getting neurological diagnosis and genetic diagnosis for affected families around Africa.
•Acquiring wheelchairs for families with loved ones who loose mobility.
•Access to professionals to consult on the different needs of the patients e.g., counselling psychologist, neurologist, nutritionist, and speech therapist.
•Hosting HD family events and community outreach.
How to Participate
Physical Run to be held on 4th September: The event will be held in the quiet and scenic Oloolua Nature Trail located in the indigenous tropical dry Oloolua forest in Kenya 20km from the Nairobi City Centre. Oloolua Nature Trail boasts a waterfall which is a breathtaking sight with the fall draining into the Mbagathi river.
