The Unite for Bleeding Disorders Walk brings our community together. It unites families with bleeding disorders and chapters with family, friends, neighbors, and coworkers to support important programs and services to help people with Hemophilia, von Willebrand Disease, and other rare bleeding disorders in our community.
The funds generated from our Walk help the Western Pennsylvania Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation:
Support families in need by offering assistance with medical bills, travel to and from the treatment center, knee/elbow braces and other medical devices
Provide medical ID jewelry to our members at no cost to them
Provide local educational programming throughout the year
Provide a support network to all our community members
Create and increase awareness about bleeding disorders
We hope you will join us at the Swimming Pool Lot in North Park on Saturday, September 18th for our 13th Annual Walk!! This is a day where our community and everyone who supports it comes together to celebrate each other, support each other, and share a beautiful day in the park. This event will include a DJ, photo booth, face painting, snacks and goodies, and fun for people of all ages!
The Unite Walk is an important part of our year-long celebration, so we are setting a big goal of raising $73,000! Please consider starting a team, joining an existing team, or making a donation.
