Reno Unite for Bleeding Disorders Walk
For our 2018 Walks, we UNITE as a community to raise awareness for all bleeding disorders.
Everyone walks for a reason, whether it’s in support of a loved one, friend, parent, child, or in memoriam, yet this event is so much more than just a walk. Formerly known as the Hemophilia Walk and 5k, many of you have already participated in this walk in previous years, and have shaped it into an amazing day of support for all Nevadans with bleeding disorders.
To those of you who are new to our community and walk this year, we welcome you and encourage you to join us for this unforgettable day.
Join us at the Hilton Garden Inn Elko for an amazing event full of education, peer to peer support, relaxation and fun. This overnight retreat hosted by the Nevada Chapter of the NHF, The Hemostasis and Thrombosis Center of Nevada and generously sponsored by Factor Support Network & Octapharma is designed to offer women with bleeding disorders the opportunity to learn more about these often-confusing disorders.
This program is open to women age 14 and older that have a bleeding disorder or are caregivers of persons with bleeding disorders. You will find plenty of opportunity to rediscover ways to have fun and increase your connection to the support networks that are available to you. We will offer programs designed to further your understanding of bleeding disorders, live positively, and develop a support network.

A través de algunas actividades interactivas y divertidas, explorará lo que significa ser resiliente, aprender algunas habilidades asociadas, así como consejos y herramientas para vivir un estilo de vida saludable.
Over the course of two days, you will have the opportunity to learn and network with other families through small group programs. With a combination of expert programs and peer led talks, the Fall Fam Jam is designed to help you build your network and knowledge – helping you achieve a higher quality of life and care.
This is a great occasion to talk one on one with the speakers, peers, and connect with important resources that empower you as a member of the Bleeding Disorders Community.
