Va Hemophilia

Home

The Virginia Hemophilia Foundation (VHF) as our mission statement implies, exists to further all facets of support, education and advocacy for those affected by a bleeding disorder. As well, our search to find a cure for all bleeding disorders remains paramount along with our goal of meeting needs for those within the bleeding disorder community. VHF serves as a common ground of resources for those around our great state and the world to serve witness to our cause.

Our cause is one that aims to ultimately eliminate the full range of bleeding disorders. Our goals are three fold: 1) Instill a better awareness and understanding about the causes of Hemophilia and bleeding disorders. 2) Empower those with bleeding disorders (and those around them) with a dedicated support network in our geographic area while providing information and to serve as a central resource for all Hemophilia and bleeding disorder issues. 3) To treat, heal and ultimately cure Hemophilia and other bleeding disorders.

At the Stonebridge Shopping Center, 7000 Tim Price Way, Richmond, VA                       Pre Race Pajama Party Begins Saturday at midnight and Race Starts at 1:50 am (Yes, you read that correctly!)

The VHF Impossible 5K is Central Virginia’s first ever Daylight Savings Time race. This unique race allows runners of all skill levels to “Finish Before they Start” because runners will take off from the starting line just before the clock rolls back and, therefore, cross the finish line “before” they started. Join the fun in this early morning dark hour (PJ’s are encouraged) and support the local bleeding disorders community while you participate in a race that offers a unique accomplishment not to be found anywhere else.

TO PARTICIPATE: Go to http://tinyurl.com/Impossible5KRun to register yourself or you can register a team of four.

REGISTRATION DETAILS: $30 per person OR $100 for a team of four. $40 per person after October 2nd. This registration fee pays for your race entry, t-shirt, goodie bag, and pre-race pajama party. To guarantee a t-shirt and goodie bag for yourself and/or your team please register and pay by October 2, 2014.
