In the summer of 2018 the European Huntington Association wants to raise awareness for Huntington’s disease. And we want to do it in a positive and fun way.
Physical activity is the most efficient “pill” for Huntington’s disease known today. It is also claimed to be the best medicine regardless of disease. Physical activity boosts you mood, energy and promotes better sleep. It can be fun, social and… extremely hard (but in the end the so called “runners high” weigh up for that last part). So why not combine treatment with awareness?
With these aspects in mind, we invite all of you to join us in a biking race. We will participate as Huntingtonians United under the slogan HD on the Bike. And we hope you will join our team.
Everyone is invited: if you’re directly affected by the disease, if you have a friend, a husband or a wife that’s affected by the disease, if you are a professional, if you simply just want to raise awarness – or if you need a good excuse to start working out. Each and every one of you can participate as a member on our team. Join our Facebook group to share training practices, get more information about the race, how to register etc.
The race will be taking place August 18. 2018, in The Ardennes (located between France, Belgium and Luxembourg). It is called Les Géants des Ardennes. It is a one-day race and you can choose between three stages:
- 80 km
- 112 km
- 153 km
Join HD on the Bike to create awareness!
