Virtual Community Connection – All Out Break-Out Games!

March 14, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

» RSVP Here

Join VHF for a highly interactive and engaging afternoon playing games, connecting with community, and celebrating Bleeding Disorders Awareness Month! Participants will gather in a Zoom room for a fun introduction to the program, and then we will divide into groups in breakout rooms to play a series of minute-to-win it style games and then will return to the main room to report achievements. Fun for all ages!

All registrants that attend will be entered into a drawing to win one of our numerous gift cards. We plan on having several winners (one per household)!

This session is free and open to VHF constituents, any constituent under the age of 12 will need adult supervision to participate.

This program will be facilitated by Beyond Recreation who has built a solid reputation among the members of the national bleeding disorder community, most notably in the areas of youth programming and summer camp. Anne Henningfeld and Michael Jay Garner of Beyond Recreation bring a distinctive list of credentials to the world of bleeding disorder programming.
