NYCHC is delighted to present this video about our annual New York City Hemophilia Walk produced by brothers Aaron and Alex Craig of We Are Films.
The New York City Hemophilia Walk is the oldest and largest Hemophilia Walk in the country! Started by a small group of local moms in 2006, it has grown into a national event that will take place in dozens of cities across the county. In 2012, the New York City Hemophilia Walk attracted thousands of participants and raised more than $250,000. These funds allow the New York City Hemophilia Chapter and the National Hemophilia Foundation to address the needs of people affected by bleeding disorders here in the Greater New York City area and across the country.
Much more than just a fundraising event, the New York City Hemophilia Walk brings together individuals affected by bleeding disorders, their families, friends, supporters and a diverse range of other New Yorkers who want to enjoy an amazing day in the park while helping a cause. It attracts people of every age and background from parents with infants in tow to grandparents and everything in between including more than a few four-legged friends.
The New York City Hemophilia Chapter (NYCHC) is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization incorporated in 2008 to address the needs of the bleeding disorder community in the greater NYC area. NYCHC's mission is to foster a sense of community amongst people affected by bleeding disorders, and to assist them and their families through information, education, advocacy, shared experiences and mutual support.
