COUNT ME IN ROUND: GOOD WILLOW HUNTINGTON'S GAME
12/05/2017 4:35:37 PM

Join us Friday the 19th of May when we meet the Glenelg Football Club and create awareness of Huntington’s Disease (HD) and aim to support those suffering from Huntingtons through the Huntingtons SA /NT association. 

Following the successful inaugural “Count me in” Round held last year, the Friday night clash will see the addition of a Rostrevor Old Collegians vs Norwood Football Club 9-aside, All Stars game being played at half time and blue glow sticks being sold with donations going directly to Huntington’s SA & NT.

Huntington’s disease is an inherited condition that affects the nervous system and can occur at any age. It’s a progressive disease and worsens over time and there is currently no cure.

Former Norwood Football player and co-founder of hopeHD, Ben Wilson is an Ambassador for Huntington’s SA & NT and is working hard to make a difference to the lives of those affected by HD.

“My goal is to bring a message of hope to the community that we can flourish, with one of the worse diseases known to mankind”

Stay tuned for the announcement of those playing in the All Stars game at half time.
