what is Huntington's Disease?
Huntington's Disease (HD) is an inherited disorder resulting in slow and irreversible loss of both mental and physical capacity. HD typically begins in mid-life, between the ages of 30 and 45, though onset may occur as early as the age of 2. Children who develop the juvenile form of the disease rarely live to adulthood. It is characterized by a loss of neurons in certain regions of the brain and progressively affects a sufferer's cognition, personality and motor skills. In its later stages, sufferers almost certainly require continual nursing care.
The annual HD Wiffleball Classic has raised over $20,000 since starting the tournament in 2014. Grandmother's Quilt took home the championship in 2019. Will your team be next? Stay tuned for next year's date...
All proceeds from this event go to Thomas Cellini Huntington's Foundation.
