HDSA-San Diego's Team 2CureHD Continues its Race to Cure Huntington's Disease
Date:6/10/2008

After overcoming incredible odds and raising more than $120,000 in the

prestigious Race Across America the past two years, Team 2CureHD is

suiting-up again

SAN DIEGO, June 10 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On Wednesday, June 11, 2008, Renato Shaffer will begin riding his bike for the third time in as many years with one goal in mind -- to end Huntington's Disease, the fatal brain disease that affects his wife and threatens his two daughters.

Shaffer and HDSA-San Diego's Team 2CureHD will toe the starting line in Oceanside, California, in the 2008 Race Across the West (RAAW), the first 1,000 miles of the 27th annual Race Across America (RAAM), a non-stop, 3,000 mile bike race. He will be joined by returning riders John Sylvester and Jason Tate, and new teammate Joe Beeson. Team 2CureHD is once again embarking on the challenge of not only competing in RAAW, but also committing themselves to raising money and nationwide awareness in the battle to cure Huntington's Disease.

Huntington's Disease (HD) is a fatal, degenerative brain disorder for which there is no effective treatment or cure. HD slowly diminishes the affected individual's ability to walk, think, talk and reason. More Americans are afflicted with HD than with Lou Gehrig's Disease (ALS). The Huntington's Disease Society of America (HDSA) is dedicated to finding a cure for HD while providing both vital services and support to improve the lives of those affected by HD.

Team 2CureHD formed almost five years ago with the intent of racing in the prestigious RAAM in order to add to HDSA-San Diego's impressive ensemble of endeavors to raise both funds and awareness. Last year, with the backing of Valero Refining Co., Elan Pharmaceuticals, Structural Inspections, Vista Del Coronado, Black Mountain Cycles, Sun Country Builders, Vitamin Water, and countless generous individual contributions, Team 2CureHD completed the grueling race in just over eight d
