The New England Hemophilia Association (NEHA) hosts an annual Walk to bring together the community and supporters to raise crucial funds. 100% of all individual donations raised go directly to NEHA's services and programs.
In 2019, over 1,600 walkers & virtual walkers raised an incredible $339,000! This was our most successful and largest Walk to date. Your past dedication and support to this important fundraiser allows us to assist, advocate, and serve those with a bleeding disorder in CT, MA, ME, NH, RI, and VT. Watch a video from last year's Walk. In 2020, we transitioned to a virtual Walk to ensure the health and safety of our community. We had over 350 participants and raised over $280,000 - succeeding our goal yet again!
Join us for our 12 Annual UNITE Walk on Saturday, October 2, 2020 at the historic and beautiful Prowse Farm in Canton, MA. We are reaching higher than ever before with a goal of raising $350,000! Please consider forming a team or joining an already existing team. Any amount that you raise will make a difference. As we were not able to be together in-person last year, we are more excited than ever for this year's Walk!
