The purpose of this web site is to raise public awareness and provide information about Huntington's Disease and the situation of those that experience it.

Huntingtons Queensland was established as a small voluntary support group in 1976 and is now a well established professional centre providing support to hundreds of families and professionals throughout Queensland. The Association is a member organisation of the national and international Huntington's Disease Associations.

Fundraising through membership contributions, donations and other activities help us to expand our services and awareness of HD. To become a member of the Association or to make a donation, please click here for an application form or contact us at:

Our amazing community just keep finding ways to raise awareness and funding.

Peta Banks is walking an astonishing 1000kms over the next 12 months, and is already more than half-way towards her goal of $1000. That’s $1 for every kilometre – how many of those kilometres can you and your friends sponsor? Donate here.

Leisa Tuite recently completed her first triathlon, and finished 19th out of more than 200 competitors – congratulations!! She will now be competing in another triathlon on April 19th in support of Huntingtons Queensland. You can donate to Leisa’s EverdayHero account here.

Amazing work, Peta and Leisa – we are all behind you!

If these phenomenal efforts have inspired you to get up and get moving, why not set yourself a challenge in support of Huntingtons Queensland too? There are plenty of fundraising events coming up that will give you a personal challenge and also the opportunity to raise funds for your charity of choice.

If running is your thing, there are a number of fun runs coming up in south-east Queensland:

If none of these are quite right for you, why not organise your own fundraising event? You can challenge yourself with a sporting option, or try something a little more intimate or creative. The options are endless – let us know so we can help you in your amazing quests!
