We're planning the next big event! In the meantime, keep an eye on Hank's Facebook page here for smaller events and other news. To see more about our previous events, sponsors, and supporters, check out our Community page.

Nothing on the Calendar...

There is no power for change greater than a community discovering what it cares about.

Thank You

All HankStrong (aka Hope for Hank) fundraising events are dedicated to supporting the research, education, and awareness of Alpers-Huttenlocher syndrome, along with all other mitochondrial diseases. All proceeds from these events go directly to fund research through the Norton Children's Hospital Foundation that will work toward better clinical care and outcomes in pediatric neurological genetic disorders and epilepsy. This work will be done in Hank's honor at the Norton Children's Neuroscience Institute, which you can learn more about here, or to support our mission locally in our community.

These events would not take place without our sponsors. Not only are we overwhelmed by the generosity and kindness that has been shown to us in supporting Hank's cause, we are also proud of the relationships and friendships that we have developed along the way. We have a long way to go, but our vision is that much closer to reality because of you. We look forward to each and every event, and hope to see you all there.

We want to continue the fight for a cure so no other families have to suffer the heartache of losing a child to mitochondrial disease.

In loving memory,

Hank Bradley Sutherland

2017 - 2020
