Hemophilia Walk

Walk Logo

We’re proud to host our sixth annual Hemophilia Walk which will take place on Sunday, September 28th at 9 AM at  Westerville Sports Complex. There’s no better place to take your “Sunday Stroll” than on 25 acres of gently rolling green space, accompanied by your family and friends.  It even includes a playground for our mini advocates! The Walk brings together family, friends, and a community of supporters to help make a difference in the lives of those affected by a bleeding disorder.  Let’s make 2014 the biggest year yet!

Why we need your support:

Every laced up shoe makes a difference! Your donation provides life-changing programs to men, women, and children who live with bleeding disorders. By creating or joining a team and collecting donations, you too can help fund the following programs:

  • Education through conferences, seminars, and speakers that provide information to families with bleeding disorders.
  • Support services and events such as Family Education Camp, Infusion Training, Camperships, and Social Factor Nights that bring the bleeding disorder community together to share experiences and create relationships with those who understand.
  • Financial assistance to those uninsured, under-insured, and having hardships due to the financial burden of caring for one affected by a bleeding disorder.

How to Register:

To register for the Hemophilia Walk, either as a team captain or an individual walker, head over to http://www.hemophilia.org/walk and click on “OH Columbus” box or go here to donate.

Once your team is registered, set your fundraising goal and recruit friends, family, and co-workers to join the best team ever!

Fundraising will be counted toward team goals until October 17. Fundraising winners will be announced at the Annual Dinner on November 5 at the Der Dutchman in Plain City.
