The safety and health of people living with hemophilia and other bleeding disorders, their families, our supporters and volunteers are our #1 priority. With that in mind, we have decided to host our NYC Unite For Bleeding Disorders Walk event VIRTUALLY. The New York Hemophilia Chapter (NYCHC) continues to monitor the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus). We are following the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO) and other health authorities and have decided to change our local events to virtual events to include the 2020 NYC Unite For Bleeding Disorders Walk on Sunday October 11th, 2020.
Even though we won’t be hosting a traditional event, our virtual event will be a chance for you to participate with other people in our community – keeping safe distancing rules in place, of course. Prior to event day, we will have fun and engaging ways to connect to our community of supporters.
HOW TO BE A PART OF A VIRTUAL EVENT
Walk or Run in your neighborhood or at home. Complete your intended distance and proudly wear red to represent the NYCHC! Please follow your local social distance ordinances to stay safe.

Are you participating in honor or memory of someone? Are you running or walking to encourage others? It's powerful and we will be encouraging you to share a picture, a post or a video with the NYCHC.
