The Hydrocephalus Association would like to extend its most sincere thanks to all of its 2010 WALK Chairs!  HA’s 25 WALKS across the U.S. had more than 7,500 walkers raising over $625,000!  6 of HA’s Walk sites were new this year, including Londonderry (NH), Barrington (RI), Louisville (KY), Portland (OR), San Joaquin Valley (CA) and Minneapolis (MN)!  Veteran sites included: Phoenix, (AZ), Detroit (MI), St. Louis (MO), Denver (CO), Salt Lake City (UT), Chicago (IL), Baltimore (MD), Cambridge/Boston (MA), Long Island (NY), Fresno (CA), Washington Township (NJ), San Francisco (CA), Milwaukee, (WI), Albuquerque (NM), Graham (NC), Austin/San Antonio (TX), Boca Raton (FL), Birmingham (AL) and Philadelphia (PA.)

HA WALKS are all 100% volunteer initiated and coordinated, which maximizes the funding available for HA’s mission. This year’s 25 WALKS represent countless volunteer hours and sacrifices made by WALK Chairs and volunteers — we very much appreciate all that they do! Planning for the 2011 WALK is already underway and HA expects to add at least seven new WALKS to its program.

If anyone is interested in starting a HA WALK in their community or in assisting with one of HA’s existing WALKS please email HA at
