Alongside his brother (also served in the army), Nick walked the Appalachian National Scenic Trail
. The trail in the eastern United States extends from northeast to southwest for about 2,190 miles along the crest of the Appalachian Mountains. Through his journey, Nick will be raising money in the fight against HD. To read more about Nick and his family, click here
“The purpose of why I am walking is multifaceted,” said Nick. “I want the average person to understand what HD is and why it needs to be cured along with many other genetic diseases. We are entering a moment in our children’s lifetime where genetic disease may be eliminated altogether. Second, my hope is that our family’s story inspires people to volunteer, donate money, or simply share this with people who have the power to make a difference. This may be my last opportunity to do something big and bold due to my own illness. My hope is that when I am one day confined to my couch like my mother that I have the capacity to appreciate the decisions that I have made over my life.”
