HD Fundraising events

The 7th Annual NYA Day at the 2011 HDSA National Convention in Minneapolis, MN was another great success and a highlight of a fabulous weekend. Over 60 young people from around the country (and world) gathered together on Thursday June 23rd in an effort to meet and connect with others in similar situations affected by HD.

The goal was for young people to realize that they are not alone and to make connections and friendships with others to take home after the convention. Throughout the course of the day there were round table discussions, educational talks and special guests who joined in to help everyone feel a little more comfortable moving into the weekend. The day ended with over 50 of the NYAers participating in a non-profit service project at Feed My Starving Children where the group packaged food to be sent off to Kenya, Africa.
