UNITE for Bleeding Disorders Walk:
There’s fun for everyone at the Unite for Bleeding Disorders Walk – San Diego! We walk to support all those who are affected by bleeding disorders – hemophilia, von Willebrand disease and other rare factor deficiencies. This event is open to everyone who wants to support improving the lives of those with bleeding disorders.
The Walk is our biggest fundraiser to support our camping program. Our camping program is for children and teens with a bleeding disorder, carriers and sibling’s ages 7-18.Your generosity will allow for campers to enjoy a week-long of typical camp activities such as archery, exploring nature, high ropes, rock climbing, lake activities, and much more. They have the opportunity to experience all the freedom and happiness of being a kid in a safe and fun environment. In addition to camp activities, campers are also introduced to self-infusion under the supervision of our medical staff. Learning to self-infuse provides kids affected by bleeding disorders with the priceless gift to gain independence and self-confidence. Along with self-infusion instruction, campers participate in various bleeding disorder focused programs.
It costs $800 to send one child to camp, which is why every dollar counts!
Whether you’ve been with us from the beginning or you are new to the Walk program, we invite you to join us in making this the biggest, most exciting, and most successful Walk yet! We’re challenging our community with a goal of 200 walkers and $25,000! We know you can do it! Create a team and have your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers and anyone else you know help you not only raise vital funds for camp but also raise awareness for the bleeding disorders community.
Much more than just a fundraising event, the Unite for Bleeding Disorders Walk brings together individuals affected by bleeding disorders, their families, friends, and supporters who want to enjoy an amazing morning and help a great cause. The Unite for Bleeding Disorders Walk attracts people of every age and background from parents with infants to grandparents and everyone in between – including more than a few four-legged friends. Everyone shows up on Walk day to share experiences and enjoy each other’s company. The San Diego Walk features food and refreshments, games/face painting for the kids, music and a vendor fair.
There is no cost to participate in this event. However, everyone that collects a minimum of $25 in donations will receive a Unite Walk t-shirt!
