Huntingtons Victoria

Since its creation, Huntington’s Victoria continues to work tirelessly to not only raise awareness but also provide crucial support, resources, and a sense of belonging to those affected by Huntington’s disease regardless of their location. Through its innovative programs, fundraising events and educational initiatives, Huntington’s Victoria continues to lead the way in providing the community with practical strategies and support until there are targeted treatments and eventually a cure.

Move 4 HD

Friday 5 July 2024
Move 4 HD is a dance initiative that celebrates an individual’s ability to move and participate. By doing so, the initiative aims to shift our focus from inability to ability, fostering a sense of value for affected individuals within this community. Current research demonstrates that people who are at risk, gene positive or diagnosed with Huntington’s disease can reduce the impact of the disease and delay progression by staying physically, mentally and socially active. You can participate by either joining our Zumba classes which will be held throughout July (dates TBC), organising your own Move 4 HD event or sharing your own activity via Instagram, Facebook or Huntington’s Community Connect, inspiring other members of your community to participate in #Move4HD.
