Join us on Saturday, August 28th at Sloan’s Lake Park for a walk around the lake and festivities! Whether you feel comfortable gathering in-person or prefer to walk in your own neighborhood, there will be opportunities for ALL to be involved! Click on the registration link above to see the in-person and virtual possibilities!
The Colorado Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation is the sole organization that supports bleeding disorder patients and their families in Colorado. Funds raised from the 9th Annual Walk go directly to support and sustain valuable programs and services such as our Women's Retreat, Teen Events, and the Mile High Camp, our week-long summer camp program for bleeding disorder patients and their siblings - cost-free.
As the State of Colorado starts to regain a sense of normalcy, the Colorado Chapter would like to remind all community members of the safety protocols we have as we return to in-person events. Please visit our COVID-19 Resource Page for details.
