The Hunter’s Hope Foundation is holding their 12th Annual Family & Medical Symposium on Saturday, August 15th. Those who have signed up will participate in the annual “Every Step Families Walk” to raise awareness and funding to support Universal Newborn Screening. Walk ceremonies will begin at 10:30 a.m. at the Beaver Hollow Conference Center in Java Center, NY.

The walk will have food, live entertainment and family activities. The Hunter’s Hope Foundation received a $75,000 contribution from Wal-Mart to assist with the funding of the Symposium. Leukodystrophy affected families participate in the five-day symposium where they learn from and share with researchers, medical professionals and other affected families.
