I’m writing to extend my best wishes on a successful Team Hope Walk at Ellsworth High School. Events like this raise public awareness of Huntington’s disease, help support those affected by Huntington’s, and continue efforts to find a cure. 
I’d also like to offer my congratulations to the Maine affiliate of the Huntington’s Disease Society of America, which has received national recognition for its advocacy work, particularly in support of the Parity Act.  And I’d like to recognize you in particular. Your tireless work over the years has increased awareness of this disease at the state and federal levels.  
Finally, I want to thank the organizers and participants in this event. I apologize for my absence as I am out of town this weekend, but please know that I support your efforts, and don’t hesitate to contact me if I can be of service.
