People from across the metro walked to raise awareness for a rare and terminal disease.
The Team Hope Walk at Lakeshore Parkway raised money in support of those suffering from Huntington's Disease.
The disease is a fatal genetic disorder that’s described as having ALS, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s at the same time.
Nearly 200 families in Mississippi are currently dealing with the disease.
So far, Huntington's Disease is known to have no cure.
"We need this awareness because with awareness comes funding and with research comes funding, and with funding comes hope for a treatment or a cure," said event coordinator Heather Thurgood-Wilmoth.
Doctors said every child of a parent with HD has a 50% chance of inheriting the gene that causes the disease.
Saturday's event raised over $11,000, all going towards research and funding for a cure.
