Walking tours are hosted by knowledgeable enthusiasts of Toronto architecture who explain the history and significance of many buildings in the area. The Gems Walk is followed by a social event.

From a past participant on this great event:  “What an amazing experience it was. You had come into the Running Room in Vaughan to talk about the Run for Huntington Disease and I was SO inspired.  I’ve never felt such a sense of community the way I did at the race… a moment that truly changed my life and my outlook on HD. Thanks for coming to Running Room that night and for all your efforts bringing so many people together.

If you can’t participate, there are other ways to help! To volunteer, donate, sponsor or help promote this event, call/text 647.238.6294 or email run@hdtoronto.org.  On Facebook, use this page to invite others to this important event.

Your impact is local and national, lifting 50,000 Canadians touched by HD and ensuring crucially-needed support services remain available to local families and individuals who may be alone or socially isolated.  Your support also helps to ensure that counselling and support groups continue to be delivered by  amazing, dedicated social workers.

May we please count on you?  Keep striving and smiling,

Tim Irwin, co-chair
