Since 1977, serving the people of North Carolina
NHF Hemophilia Walks
The eighth annual Hemophilia Walk in NC is coming soon! This year we are having TWO Walk events in different parts of the state. See below for complete information and downloadable resources.
What: The Hemophilia Walk is the National Hemophilia Foundation's (NHF) largest event dedicated to finding better treatments and cures for bleeding and clotting disorders, and to preventing the complications of these disorders through awareness, education, advocacy and research. The walk in North Carolina is a collaborative effort between NHF and Hemophilia of North Carolina (HNC). The North Carolina chapter is proud to be one of 31 locations around the country participating in this program and the proceeds will help our chapter continue to provide programs and services to our local community.
Why: Established in 1948, NHF is the premier organization in the U.S. serving the bleeding and clotting disorders community. Now in its 66th year, NHF continues to be a vital resource for prevention education and provides a network of support for Americans living with bleeding disorders and their families. HNC has been assisting the bleeding disorders community in the state for over 40 years. We support families through ongoing educational programs, peer support groups, patient advocacy, emergency financial assistance, scholarships and support for summer camps that our children attend.
