Join Our National Movement to End Hydrocephalus

Tags: , ,

The world has changed, but our mission has not! So the question is – what would YOU do to end hydrocephalus?

This year we’re expanding our WALK to End Hydrocephalus into a national movement that lets you bring your creativity to our biggest fundraising program. And it starts NOW wherever you are! That’s right – whether you go for family walks around your neighborhood, a short jog, host a family hulahoop competition in your backyard or virtual happy hours with friends, turn your passion into a way to raise awareness and funds for a cure!

Here’s how you join our movement:

  1. Visit www.hydroassoc.org/walk to find and register for a WALK to End Hydrocephalus near you.
  2. No WALK in your state? Register for our Virtual ANYWHERE WALK to End Hydrocephalus. After you register and set up your fundraising page, you’ll have access to tools and ideas and get you started!
  3. Launch a fun challenge you can do from your own home. For example, aim to walk or ride 100 miles over a two-month period by yourself or with your family, commit to doing 20 jumping jacks each day until the day of your local WALK, or host a Netflix watch party and encourage your friends to donate what they would usually spend at the movies! ANYTHING YOU WANT!
  4. Using the hashtag #HydroStrong, post photos and/or videos of yourself on social media letting people know what you’re doing and include a link to your individual or team WALK to End Hydrocephalus page, encouraging people to support you by making a donation. 
  5. Join us online on September 26th, for our Live National WALK to End Hydrocephalus Celebration, where we will celebrate our journey together and highlight the fun challenges people did across the country.

The idea is to show our resiliency while we are social distancing to spread awareness about hydrocephalus and to raise much-needed funds to help HA survive this pandemic. Because, now more than ever, WE NEED YOUR HELP so we can continue to support YOU and the over 1 million Americans living with hydrocephalus and to fund research that is already yielding results! (8 drugs in testing!) We are all #HydroStrong.

SAMPLE SOCIAL MEDIA POST:

I’m raising awareness and funds to find a cure for #hydrocephalus, a chronic brain condition that has no cure and can only be treated with brain surgery. So, I’m aiming to run 100 miles over the next 2 months and I’ll let you know how I’m doing along the way! Will you support me by making a donation to this important cause? #HydroStrong [INSERT LINK TO YOUR TEAM PAGE]
