The Hemophilia Foundation of Greater Florida works diligently to make a difference in the lives of people with bleeding disorders and their families. Programs and services are funded through fundraising efforts from the walk.

Bleeding disorders like Hemophilia and Von Willebrands Disease can be very costly for patients and their families. The medication required to treat these patients are an average of $300,000 per patient, and the processes to treat them can be time consuming and exhaustive. Without access to treatment, patients are at risk of developing muscle and joint complications, and in some cases internal bleeding that can become fatal. By supporting the 2021 Super Hero Fun Walk you will ensure this does not happen to patients in your area!
This is a major fundraising event– we need everyone’s help to raise funds to support services for individuals with bleeding disorders and their families. Anyone who raises $50 will get a commemorative walk t-shirt! Are you interested in walking, volunteering or sponsoring the 15th Annual Super Hero Fun Walk?
