40-Mile Challenge

Ready To Get Moving For An Amazing Cause?

4th Annual 40-Mile Challenge

We challenge YOU to walk or run 40 miles in April to raise awareness and critical funds to help find a cure and improve the lives of those impacted by hydrocephalus. This year, the 40-Mile Challenge is extra special because we are celebrating HA's 40th Anniversary - 40 Miles for 40 Years!

This is our 4th annual Facebook 40-Mile Challenge. Please sign up in Facebook Messenger to participate. Once you sign up, you will be sent exclusive access to our private Facebook Group for participants only. This will provide you with tools to help you track your progress and encourage you with every mile.

You can run or walk at your own pace, and we’ll be there to support you every step of the way. Sign up today and let’s start working towards a cure together!

"Our 6-year old son Croix developed hydrocephalus following a stroke at four months of age. He has had one shunt revision on top of many other complications due to his stroke. He developed hydrocephalus and cerebral palsy as a result of that stroke. Participating in the hydrocephalus 40-Mile Challenge has been extremely important to me not only to raise funds for the cause but also to help raise awareness. Participating in the challenge gives me so much peace and joy knowing I am helping adults, children and Croix who have to live with this condition. I look forward to this challenge every year and am excited to kick off the 2023 40-Mile Challenge!"
