2021 WALK to End Hydrocephalus Raises over $1.6 Million
Thanks to our passionate volunteers, we were able to hold 41 WALKs to End Hydrocephalus events this year. Most of HA’s WALKs were held live and in person, bringing together the hydrocephalus community in cities across the country. In total, the WALKs raised over $1.6 million, with 734 teams participating and 6,500 registered participants and volunteers.
HA’s top WALK to End Hydrocephalus site was Long Island, co-chaired by Mia Padron and Jackie Davidson, raising $132,095.
Director of WALK and Community Fundraising
"2021 saw our WALK to End Hydrocephalus program regaining momentum, in partnership with our amazing volunteer WALK Chairs. The majority of the WALKs were held live and in person, and the hydrocephalus community rejoiced in being able to renew connections and make new ones. It is gratifying that the WALK program continues to serve a dual purpose – raising money to provide the resources required for HA to continue its work and bringing the hydrocephalus community together."
