archcare-hope-walkPOUGHKEEPSIE – Striding in unity and hope, 130 participants of the first-ever Team Hope Walk – Hudson Valley, trekked from Highland to Poughkeepsie across the Walkway Over the Hudson in November.

Together, the group raised more than $27,000 for the Huntington’s Disease Society of America, whose New York chapter partnered with ArchCare, the healthcare system of the Archdiocese of New York, for the event to benefit individuals with Huntington’s disease and those who love them.

The fatal genetic disorder causes the progressive breakdown of nerve cells in the brain and currently affects 30,000 Americans, www.hdsa.org/thwhudsonvalley.com.
