There are more walks happening all across the country to help raise money for hemophilia, for the local organizations who help us in our own states, for the National Hemophilia Foundation that lobbies for us and provides research, and even Save One Life, the nonprofit I founded, may benefit!
If you want to help kids with hemophilia, especially those suffering in poverty overseas, here’s how!
Bayer is sponsoring “Virtual Walks” throughout the year, from the comfort of your own home, and Save One Life, which now sponsors over 1,000 children and young adults with hemophilia in developing countries, may benefit directly from it!
Bayer is proud to announce the 2nd Annual Bayer Virtual Walk for Hemophilia! Committed to helping support those who live with bleeding disorders, Bayer, through the Virtual Walk, is offering sponsorship funds to the National Hemophilia Foundation* (NHF), its local participating chapters, and to Save One Life (www.saveonelife.net). This year, the top 5 participating local NHF chapters with the most virtual walkers will receive sponsorship funds, as follows:
First Place: $15,000 Second Place: $10,000 Third Place: $5,000 Fourth Place: $2,500
Bayer will also award up to $30,000 to the National Office of the NHF in New York City, and up to $7,000 to Save One Life.
If your local chapter is not one of the participating chapters in this year’s Virtual Walk, you can still be involved! Just choose to walk for the National Office of the NHF. You can then share your virtual walker on Facebook and invite everyone you know.
Together we will help raise awareness for bleeding disorders across the country!
(My two cents: And help directly those suffering in countries where no factor is available)
