The Nevada Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation's
2021 Reno Unite for Bleeding Disorders Walk
Saturday, September 18, 2021 at 10:00 am
Virtual Walk Program on Zoom
The Nevada Chapter is committed to maintaining the health and safety of our community members, volunteers, staff and supporters. In light of keeping our community safe, we've made the difficult decision to move the Reno Unite for Bleeding Disorders Walk to a virtual only opportunity. The biggest factor in this decision is the health and safety of our community members. The combined factors of hazardous air quality conditions and COVID transmissions in Washoe County post too great a risk to encourage our community to gather in-person outside.
We have continuously been inspired by the Nevada Bleeding Disorders Community's resilience and ability to connect in the virtual space. We are excited to see all of our teams and sponsors join together on Zoom at 10 am on Saturday, September 18th for an opening session and pinwheel ceremony, to connect with sponsors, and to celebrate the bleeding disorders community united together, apart from the safety of our homes.
Our participants are encouraged to walk a mile in their neighborhood if the air quality conditions are favorable or participate in our "walk a mile in your home" exercise routine. All teams that are registered before Friday, September 10th, will receive a walk box with all the supplies you need for an at-home walk experience including t-shirts for any participants that donated or raised $30+.
The funds raised at this event will be used to assist our overall mission to improve the quality of care and life for people with hemophilia, von Willebrand disease, and other inherited bleeding disorders through education, peer support, and advocacy.
We can't do this walk without you! Pleasecreate a team and have your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers and anyone else you know help you not only raise funds but also raise awareness for hemophilia and other bleeding disorders. If someone you know has already created a team, join their team and support them! Please spread the word to support the important work that chapters like us and other chapters across the country do for those affected with bleeding disorders!
*PARTICIPANTS WHO MAKE A $30 OR MORE PERSONAL DONATION WILL RECEIVE A UNITE FOR BLEEDING DISORDERS T-SHIRT*
