Huntington Voices

Huntington’s is a horrible, horrible disease. It affects your memory. It affects your personality. It takes away your dignity, and it destroys families. But I really do believe that in 10 or 15 years, researchers will find a way to delay the onset or stop it from progressing.

Online pledging is available here for this event.

Please join the Huntington disease community for a 90-minute stroll through the Annex neighbourhood of Toronto, where we find a wonderful collection of turn of the century homes. Walking tours are hosted by knowledgeable enthusiasts of Toronto architecture who explain the history and significance of many buildings in the area. This signature fundraising event aims to be informative and enjoyable for all ages as well as raise much needed funds to support Canadians living with and affected by Huntington disease. Organized by volunteers, the Gems Walk is in its 16th year and going strong, raising over $175,000 since inception. See the brochure for all the details of where to meet and how the event works!

Help us make this a record breaking year. Enjoy the day with your family and help those affected by HD make the most of every moment.

Thanks to our generous event supporters: Harbord BIA, Bloor Annex BIA, and long time supporter Wright Real Estate Ltd Brokerage.
