My name is Ashley Fajardo and I am the Team Hope Walk Event Coordinator. I have been the walk coordinator for 5 years now and it has changed my life. Growing up my mom had Huntington’s Disease which is a neurological brain disorder that is terminal. It is similar to Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s combined. She fought a long hard battle and passed away when I was 13. After that when I turned 18 I decided to get tested to see if I carried the gene, because every child whose parent has it stands there own 50/50 chance of inheriting the gene. I tested positive, but have not yet started showing symptoms. It changed my way of life. I do everything now instead of later and I try living a healthy lifestyle that is well balanced. I also try to live each day to its fullest. I have been volunteering for the Huntington’s Disease Society of America for the last 10 years and the last 5 I have been putting on this walk. The walk is so important to help fund research to find a cure, brings awareness to our community, and most important brings hope to those whose families are affected by this deadly disease. I am so blessed to have an amazing support system of friends and family and just wanted to share it now with my new crossfit community! I love the encouragement and close knit community crossfit brings me. As I opened up about this some people asked how to get involved. I would love to see you all out there representing our box and crossfit at the walk this year. Feel free to ask any questions about the walk, me,or HD I am an open book!
