Get Your Blood Pumping for Hemophilia

Funds raised benefit those impacted by Hurricane Irma

Published Thursday, September 14, 2017

The Hemophilia Foundation of Greater Florida (HFGF) is howling to host its annual Jacksonville Creepy Crawl 5K and Vampire Mile on October 14th at the spooky Nocatee community, located at 100 Marketside Avenue, Ponte Vedre, FL 32081. Runners and walkers are invited to register now for this hair-raising 5K and walk and encouraged to fundraise for the HFGF bleeding disorders community… Costumes welcome! Wicked awards are presented for top team and individual fundraisers, most spirited teams, best Halloween costumes, and top male and female runners in different age groups. The 5K is officially timed for runners and a one-mile vampire walk is available for walkers.

 

This isn’t scary: Approximately 90% of fundraising dollars from events support programs for Florida’s bleeding disorders community such as our medically supervised summer Camp Spirit, family support weekends, health educational programs, and financial emergency assistance. With the recent effects of Hurricane Irma, this year’s walks are particularly important. “Our patients have been affected by Hurricane Irma and we are here to help them,” says Fran Haynes, Executive Director for HFGF. “We will surely receive more requests this year for emergency financial assistance that we have in the past due to Hurricane Irma.” HFGF has been serving the bleeding disorders community since 1996 by supporting healthier and more independent lives.  

 

Visit hemophilliaflorida.org/Jacksonville to register for either the 5K or and for more information. 5K registration is $30 per participant.
