Join the Hydrocephalus Association and your local Hydrocephalus community as we walk together to support those affected by Hydrocephalus and also raise money to fund research for a cure.

Right now, treatment is brain surgery–and it often has to be repeated. Please join us September 10 at 10:00 am (registration begins at 8:30 am) at Frisco Park in Rogers, AR as we raise awareness for Hydrocephalus and get one step closer to a permanent treatment. This is the first walk of this nature to be held in NWA, but hopefully not the last! For more information, please contact Kipp Coco at email@example.com or call (479)925-8960.
