For Logan, a Charles River scientist, Huntington’s disease research is focused around a repeating CAG gene. For Jenne, a young mother of two, Huntington’s disease research is hope. When Jenne discovered she carries the HD gene and only has a few years before she starts presenting symptoms, her world was turned upside down. Now she’s waiting while scientists at Charles River and CHDI Foundation race to find an effective treatment.
This holiday season, instead of sending cards, Charles River is encouraging the spirit of giving by donating $1, up to $5,000, for every view of "The Race" video to the Huntington’s Disease Youth Organization.
