Hemophilia Association Walk Nov. 14 At Okeeheelee

The Florida Hemophilia Association will host its 11th annual FHA Unite Walk for Bleeding Disorders on Sunday, Nov. 14 at Okeeheelee Park. Registration opens at 9 a.m. at the Micanopy Pavilion.

The FHA Unite Walk for Bleeding Disorders is a major fundraiser and is crucial to serving the complex needs of bleeding disorder patients and families in Florida, such as providing educational scholarships, emotional support, advocacy and financial assistance.

The walk is more than just a fundraising event, it brings together individuals affected by bleeding disorders, their families, friends, supporters and a diverse range of others who want to enjoy an amazing day together while supporting a worthy cause. It attracts people of every age and background, from parents with infants in tow to grandparents and everything in between, including furry friends.

“This community is my passion,” Executive Director Deborah Adamkin said. “The FHA has been providing care to patients and families for 38 years now, and I have a special awareness since my family is also affected.”

Adamkin hopes to raise $100,000 through the event. “That will allow the organization to continue providing critical support programs to those affected by a bleeding disorder throughout the State of Florida,” she said.

The FHA is a not-for-profit organization that is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life in the bleeding disorder community by creating programs and services that provide education, emotional support and advocacy.
