Welcome to Huntington disease (HD) Awareness Month 2022! Although every month is an important time to raise awareness about Huntington disease, each May we come together to offer a concentrated effort of education, community spirit and hope.
This May, we are hosting many exciting events from our HD Hockey Classic to the Huntington Heroes National Virtual Walk and our well known campaign, Light It Up 4 HD. Aside from these initiatives we will continue to educate and build awareness about HD throughout #HDAwarenessMonth with HD profiles, awareness videos and so much more, stay tuned!
Light It Up 4 HD: Buildings and structures across Canada and the world light up in blue (for HD) and purple (for juvenile HD) throughout May, HD Awareness Month. This year we want to reach even more people so that those impacted can find hope as HD is brought out of the shadows and into the light.

Huntington Heroes National Virtual Walk: This May we are joining together in a united goal to walk 4000 km and raise $300,000 towards HD research and support services. In an effort to further awareness and community spirit, all of the walks will take place over the entire month of May with some even returning to in-person. This year we also launched an exciting new T-shirt design contest. The winning design and our official Huntington Heroes T-shirt this year (featured to the left) is available for purchase via the link below.
