EVENT Fund-raising walk set for Saturday at Houston Zoo

Children's Memorial Hermann Hospital and Memorial Hermann Mischer Neuroscience Institute at the Texas Medical Center invite all to walk to end hydrocephalus. The event takes places at 8 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 20 at the Houston Zoo, and there is no charge to participate.

Participants will view giraffes, elephants and more as they journey through the zoo for the Third Annual Houston Hydrocephalus Association (HA) Walk, a 5K walk to raise critical funding for important research, advocacy and support for our hydrocephalus community.

Following the walk, the celebration will continue with music, children's activities, a raffle and food, and all participants are welcome to stay and enjoy the zoo for the remainder of the day. Both actual and virtual “walkers” who raise at least $25 will receive a 2014 HA WalkT-shirt.

One of the most common birth defects in newborns, hydrocephalus affects one out of every 500 births and is the number one reason children must undergo brain surgery. HA supports a strategic research initiative that focuses on work that will truly advance the understanding of the disease, discover its causes, improve its treatment and help to see an end to hydrocephalus.
