Hustle for Hope Wrap-Up
Our inaugural virtual Hustle for Hope 5K had almost 200 participants and we were able to raise more than $6,700 for Hope for HIE!

These critical funds allow us to continue to fulfill our mission dedicated to awareness, education and support for HIE.

Thank you so much for supporting this new effort, and we look forward to having more events in the future that bring together our community from all around the world.
Meet our Newest Board Member

We are excited to introduce you to our newest member to our Board of Directors: Becky Detlef.

Becky recently joined the Hope for HIE Board in the position of Secretary, replacing Lindsay Vanzandt, who served on the Board of Directors for five years. We want to thank Lindsay for her incredible service during her tenure on the board. She will continue volunteering as a support network administrator.

Becky has served as one of the administrators of our HIE Loss Support group for many years, and most recently attended a training for peer-to-peer support hosted by the Child Neurology Foundation in December 2019 for Hope for HIE.

Becky's perspective on experiencing HIE loss first-hand will be a significant asset to our Board of Directors, and we are so grateful for all she has already contributed to our organization, and all that is to come.

Look for an upcoming HOPE GOES LIVE! on our social media channels with Becky.
