In aid of Huntington’s Awareness Month this May, Sensor City has joined forces with the Liverpool Science Park (LSP) team once again, pledging some of its time to help raise much needed funds for its charity of the year.
The Huntington Disease Association (HDA) is calling on supporters to step forward for the 8000 people living with the disease in the UK as part of their HD Hike campaign.
To show its support, the team is going above and beyond, and has pledged to walk (or run) for a minimum of 8000 minutes during May, which is the equivalent of walking non-stop for more than 133 hours.
Leanne Katsande, Head of Commercial at Liverpool Science Park, said:
“After the success of our last challenge, we are all really excited to get stuck in and push ourselves even further. We are incredibly proud to have the HDA as our charity of the year and hope that people will dig deep to help us raise money for this unbelievable cause.”
During November and December last year, the Sensor City team helped to raise in excess of £1600 for the HDA, in a joint fundraiser with the Clatterbridge Cancer Charity and are hoping to reach another ambitious target of £1000.
