This year, we will be walking across the Brooklyn Bridge, towards Manhattan, and turning around before reaching the Island to end the WALK in Cadman Plaza Park.

Join us in New York City to raise money for hydrocephalus research, education, advocacy, and community support networks. The WALK to End Hydrocephalus is the Hydrocephalus Association’s largest annual fundraising event, raising nearly $1.6 million last year thanks to more than 12,000 participants in 38 locations across the U.S. When you take part in ending hydrocephalus, you join a family of 1 million+ Americans who are fighting for a cure every day. Don’t miss your chance to make history with HA in 2017. Register today!
