The purpose of the event is to raise awareness of Huntington’s Disease and the overwhelming challenges faced by the patients, families and caregivers affected by the disease. As part of the HDdennomore initiative (pronounced “Hidden No More”), the event aims to shine a light on and bring global attention to the HD community, and to mobilize action to improve the lives of those affected by HD.
