"I am joining the Bruised Brothers again this year as a virtual walker to support my amazing childhood friend Victoria Vicory and her sons who have hemophilia, a genetic blood disorder in which the person's blood does not clot properly. This disorder can lead to severe bruising, excessive bleeding, and pain, however, treatments and programs are available through organizations like the Colorado Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation. Please consider joining the team for the August 22nd, Unite for Bleeding Disorders Denver 2020 Virtual Walk or donate to this very worthy cause! All donations will support kids and adults living with bleeding disorders in our community." - Shannon Mauler, Equinox Director of Operations & Business Development
Your support of our Unite for Bleeding Disorders Denver Walk has helped make Colorado a leader in the national community. The Walk at Sloan’s Lake has been a beacon event that has raised thousands of dollars and brought hundreds of community members together. This year, the Walk will look different, but our goal to bring a brighter future to everyone living with a bleeding disorder remains the same. And we need your help to continue this critical work.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will implement this year’s Walk virtually. While we certainly tried everything possible to keep this day in person, the health and safety of our community members is our number one priority. We’ll be using a lot of new incentives to help encourage participation, so please look forward to fun and frequent communication on ways to stay involved. And of course, we hope you will still join us on Saturday, August 22nd for a fun-filled virtual celebration.
All of the funds raised at this event stay here in Colorado and are used to help further our mission and vision. Our vision is to create an environment where those affected by bleeding disorders feel like part of a community, part of the solution, and empowered in their daily lives through connection with others who can relate to them and their challenges. The Colorado Chapter of National Hemophilia Foundation has served those affected by bleeding disorders for the state of Colorado since 1974.
PARTICIPANTS WHO MAKE A $25 MINIMUM DONATION WILL STILL RECEIVE A UNITE FOR BLEEDING DISORDERS T-SHIRT!
Thank you for your support!
The Colorado Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3), community-based organization, dedicated and responsible for addressing the challenges bleeding disorder patients and their families face through education, advocacy, and empowerment.
