The Hydrocephalus Association WALK


“Never believe that a few caring people can’t change the world. For, indeed, that’s all who ever have.”
–Margaret Mead

HA WALK logo The truth behind this famous quotation is demonstrated by the history of Hydrocephalus Association (HA) WALKs!  In 1993 a small group of dedicated people affected by hydrocephalus gathered to walk across San Francisco’s Oakland Bay Bridge, their purpose: to unite the local hydrocephalus community to raise awareness of this life altering, potentially life threatening condition and to raise money for the Hydrocephalus Association’s program services. Since that humble beginning 19 years ago HA WALKS have grown to 30+ events held in 28 states across the U.S., annually raising almost $1 million dollars for HA’s mission – to eliminate the challenges of hydrocephalus by ! All HA WALKS are volunteer initiated and coordinated, greatly maximizing the amount of funding that can be directed to the mission: to eliminate the challenges of hydrocephalus by stimulating innovative research and providing support, education and advocacy for individuals, families and professionals dealing with hydrocephalus. In 2012 HA WALKS and special events (all volunteer initiated and coordinated) raised over $1,000,000 to support HA’s mission: education, support, advocacy and research.  It is anticipated that over 12,000 participants will be walking in 2013.To see our current WALK Schedule, please click here.Or to find out how you can start an HA WALK in your own community, contact walk@hydroassoc.org.
