The VHF community came together on October 10th in support of our first-ever virtual Unite for Bleeding Disorders Walk – thank you to everyone who contributed to the success of this event! Whether you fundraised, donated, secured a sponsorship or simply shared the event with your friends and family, your hard work paid off and made a BIG impact. Together with sponsorship and anticipated matching gifts, you raised an amazing $31,253 – we are so grateful! Each donation made will stay local to VHF and go to programs such as year-round advocacy efforts, tailored educational events, and scholarships for community members. THANK YOU!

A special thank you goes out to our Top 3 Teams this year: Star City Bleeders, Team Lukasz, and Marian’s All Stars; and our Top Individual Walkers: Colin Davidson, Monika Eiden, and Vivek Kshetrapal.

Enjoy more of our #UniteDay2020 pictures on the VHF Flickr page! If you missed the event, you can check out our recorded program here.
