About 200 join "Team Hope Walk" in Madison Sunday

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- The "Team Hope Walk" brought about 200 people to Vilas Park where they raised money for the Huntington's Disease Society of America's Wisconsin Chapter on Sunday.

The organization says this is the most successful year they've had for the race so far in Madison. "This year it has grown so much. We have over 200 participants, we've raised already over $20,000 all to help find a cure for this neurological brain disorder," Shana Martin says.

Right now there's no cure for Huntington's Disease. The society says more than 30,000 people in the United States are currently diagnosed with the disease and 250,000 people are at risk.
