Virtual UNITE for Bleeding Disorders Walk:
The Hemophilia Association of San Diego County is committed to maintaining the health and safety of our community members, volunteers, staff and supporters. Due to the unknowns surrounding the current pandemic, to continue to keep our community safe and abide by state and CDC guidelines, we are transitioning our walk to a Virtual Event.
Although we would like to hold this event in person and be able to see everyone’s faces, we look forward to seeing how our virtual walk can UNITE us.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE
2020 marks our 20th year of summer camp. Join us as we walk 20 miles in celebration of 20 years of camp.
Walk 20 miles! In the next two months, walk, run, hike or bike 20 miles at home, in your neighborhood or around town safely. The great thing about a virtual walk, is you can pick any location, time, and length. This is also a great chance to invite relatives or friends to join you and experience the San Diego Unite Walk virtually with our community.
Share your progress! Share your progress with us as you complete your 20 miles by sharing a photo on Facebook or Instagram and tagging HASDC. Share with us “Why I Walk.” The San Diego Unite Walk has always been about celebrating our community and families. Going virtual will be no different. All posts shared with us will be entered into a drawing for a prize on walk day!

WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU?
WHY WE WALK
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 in San Diego and Imperial Counties.
The Unite Walk is our biggest fundraiser to support our mission and programming efforts. Your support has allowed us to continue to provide our camping program as well as providing patients, caregivers, and families focused programs throughout the year. This year, due to the impact of COVID- 19, we were able to change the parameters of our Financial Assistance Program. Funds raised from the Unite Walk will not only allow our programming efforts to continue but will allow us to help more families in our community that need an extra hand during these difficult times.
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 best virtual walk. We’re challenging our community with a goal of $35,000! We know you can do it!
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 support 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.
