Walk For HS is, initially, a blog to keep you up to date on my transcontinental walk to raise awareness and funding for research of Hidradenitis Suppurativa. After my walk is over, this website will transition from being a blog to becoming a full-blown, living, breathing, non-profit.  When that time comes, Walk for HS will begin encouraging awareness by holding special public events, connecting HS patients to one another for both support and knowledge sharing, and serve as a disseminator of funds. This means it would disperse donations it receives out to the most promising HS ventures, whether it be to an organization like HS-Foundation.org, similar groups, or to individuals or companies aspiring to create online or store-shelf treatments.
