- HDSA 28th Annual Convention A Success
"Plains to Lakes" is a 700 mile bicycle ride from Belle Fourche, SD to Minneapolis, MN for the 26th Annual HDSA Convention (June 24-26, 2011). In 1967, Marjorie Guthrie, the widow of famed folksinger Woody Guthrie, founded the Committee to Combat Huntington's Disease, which evolved into the Huntington's Disease Society of America. As in the prior twelve rides, the purpose of the ride is to heighten public awareness of Huntington's Disease and to raise funds for family services and research towards a cure.
- Bicyclists to ride the Central Lakes/Lake Wobegon Rails-to-Trails with us on June 20-23. Bring your own bike or rent one. Show your support for efforts to cure HD! Experience the thrill of ending the ride at the Convention Hotel.
- Contact Marie for more specific information.
