TOM MOORE

Seventeen years ago, Tom Moore, the former minister and director of Resort Area Ministry (RAM's Rack, etc.) of Boone was diagnosed with Huntington's Disease (HD). Huntington's Disease is an inherited disease that slowly diminishes the patient's ability to walk, think and reason. Tom's father and brother have both succumbed to this debilitating condition, and on January 13, 2018, Tom, too passed away to the disease. In hopes of finding a cure, Tom wanted people to know about Huntington's Disease , so the Tom Moore 5K was created. In memory of Tom, please join his family and other families from Mt. Airy, Statesville and Charlotte Saturday, April 28, at the Boone Greenway Trail, as we increase awareness and raise money for research in hopes of finding an effective treatment and possible cure.

To date there are approximately 30,000 known HD cases in the United States with 250,000 Americans at risk of inheriting the disease from a parent.

Although medical research has provided HD patients with promising treatments related to their symptoms, there is yet a cure for Huntington's Disease., but with your support, together, we can make a difference.
