15th Anniversary Unite Walk
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, many of our events are being moved to a virtual setting in order to keep you, and our entire community safe and healthy while obeying public-health guidelines and restrictions.
This summer marks our 15th Anniversary Walk in New York City! While we cannot meet in person to celebrate this special milestone, we are excited to share this special anniversary with you virtually. We will be hosting a series of virtual events—including tributes, challenges, and more—to celebrate this being our 15th Anniversary Walk.
This will conclude with our first-ever virtual walk on Saturday, October 10. Here, we’ll ask you to take part in our “One Mile Wherever You Are” campaign to walk or run one mile in your area to raise awareness and funds for our community.
So much has changed in our community over the past fifteen years, whether that be treatment options, or the bleeding disorders community itself. We need your help to keep this momentum going in order to help our community for years to come.
The money raised at this event will be used to assist our overall mission to find better treatments and cures for bleeding disorders and to prevent the complications of these disorders through education, awareness, advocacy and research. We are also proud to announce that the money raised from this Walk will help us send families from our area to our chapter’s first ever Family Camp next summer summer!
Please consider starting a team, joining an existing team, or making a donation. Every little bit counts and brings us closer to our goal! If you’re not sure who to donate to, check out our amazing list of teams! Be sure to click on their links and see why they Unite!
Participants who make a $25 minimum donation will receive a special shirt to commemorate this being our 15th Anniversary Walk!
