Welcome to the Grand River Founders Walk/Run to Cure HD!

The Founders Walk to Cure HD honours the Huntington Society of Canada's founders, Ralph and Ariel Walker, who started the society 45 years ago, in 1973, at their kitchen table in Cambridge. 

Ariel Walker often shares a story about the dragonflies that explains their significance to the community, which can be found here. It is due to the profound connection this has with HD community that you will see dragonflies incorporated throughout the walk.

Please join us in celebrating our founders at this family fun event! Stay tuned to this site for information on fun activities we have planned for the day, as well as exciting prizes!
