Huntington’s Disease Awareness Month

Internationally, May is the awareness-raising month for Huntington’s disease (HD). The driving force behind the May awareness campaign is to provide all members of the Huntington’s community with an opportunity to connect and learn from each other as well as educating others not directly impacted by Huntington’s disease. Huntington’s Victoria was the first Australian Huntington’s disease specific organisation to join the May Awareness campaign in 2004 which has now expanded to include Light It Up 4 HD and Move 4 HD since 2017 in addition to Go Blue May 22 since 2019.

Our events for 2023 are:
