Join the Chargers to fight Huntington's Disease

In the past when I've brought certain charities to light here at BFTB, I've gotten nothing but e-mails thanking me and lots of participation on the part of our little community. Today, I want to let you know about the Chargers' "TDs to Cure HD" pledge program and how you can join them in the fight against Huntington's Disease.

I'm going to be pledging some of my own money as part of this, and I know some of you will join me in doing so. Throughout the course of the season I'll check in with this program, letting all of you know how much of my money has gone towards fighting this terrible disease until I hit the maximum (which is going to happen because, come on, it's the Chargers' offense).

After the jump, read about the four different levels of membership in this pledge program and the rewards for participating in each one. Also, at the end of this post is a form that you can download, fill out and send in to join the "TDs to Cure HD" program.

TDs to CURE HD

Pledge from $1 to $40 per touchdown the Chargers score during the 2010 regular season and postseason. The greater your pledge, the greater your reward. Your greatest reward is the knowledge that 100% of your donation is helping end Huntington’s disease.

Huntington’s disease is a fatal, genetic brain disorder that destroys a person’s mental and physical abilities. An estimated 30,000 Americans have it, and at least 150,000 more are at risk. Children of a parent with HD have a 50-50 chance of inheriting the condition, and the disease can start as early as childhood. Today there is no cure or treatment, but your support gives our families hope for a future free from HD.
