Join the Virginia Hemophilia Foundation for our virtual walk on October 10th!
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 are moving our Unite for Bleeding Disorders Walk to virtual this fall! Our virtual event will be a chance for you to participate with other people in our community – while keeping safe distancing rules in place! Prior to event day, we will have fun and engaging ways to connect to our community of supporters.
HOW TO BE PART OF A VIRTUAL EVENT
Walk or Run in your neighborhood or at home. Complete your intended distance and proudly wear red to represent VHF! Please follow your local social distance ordinances to stay safe.
Share Your Why With Us. In the weeks and months leading up to our virtual Walk, VHF will invite you to post on your social network WHY you are participating. 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 VHF!
Track and share your progress. As you train for the VHF Unite For Bleeding Disorders Walk, share your progress on Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram by sharing a live video and pictures. Post your fundraising goal and a link to your fundraising page, too.
