Walkers, runners, individuals, teams, families, and kids are invited to take part in the Las Vegas Hemophilia Walk & 5K to support the inherited bleeding disorder community September 23 at Floyd Lamb Park at Tule Springs.
Registration and check-in starts at 7:30 a.m., with the walk and run at 8:30. There will be a light pre-walk breakfast, music, activities for children and a team t-shirt contest. Admission to Floyd Lamb Park is free for all walk participants.
Money raised goes to support the Nevada Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation’s efforts to help promote awareness of and improve the quality of care and life for people living with hemophilia, von Willebrand disease and other inherited bleeding disorders.
The majority of proceeds will be used to send children with inherited bleeding disorders —- along with siblings — to a special, medically supervised summer camp at no cost. Camp Independent Firefly offers kids, aged 7 to 17, the chance to interact with others like themselves and to feel supported while also learning independence in how they live with their life-long condition.
