13th Annual Unite Walk
Each year, we host an annual Walk to celebrate the resilience, dedication and perseverance of our Wicked Strong Family! This important event also raises vital funds needed to allow our organization to continue to fulfill its mission of providing education, support and advocacy for the New England bleeding disorders community.
On October 1, community members, their families, friends, supporters, local businesses and our industry partners from all six New England states came together for our 13th Annual Walk at Prowse Farm in Canton, MA.
You can still make a donation until December 31, 2022 to help us continue our work on behalf of the bleeding disorders community in New England.
How Your Donation Makes A Difference
Your support allows us to continue our work of providing support, education and advocacy to those living with a bleeding disorder in the following ways:
- Family Camp – In June of 2022, 41 families from all six New England states attended our 30th Annual Family Camp. One of the hallmarks of Camp is when children with a bleeding disorder learn to administer their treatment through intravenous for the first time. This right of passage allows them to live independently without letting their condition hold them back. Because of your financial support, we are able to subsidize 93% of the cost of Family Camp. Your donations helps give this experience to others.
- Emergency Assistance – Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, we provided over $60,000 to more than 125 New England families experiencing a financial hardship. Your support allows us to help those in need.
- Advocacy – We’ve lead efforts to protect patients by passing accumulator adjuster legislation in Connecticut and Maine, and we continue to advocate for access to care for all across all six New England states. Your generosity allows us and our needs to continue to be heard.
- Research – Since 2018, we’ve contributed over $100,000 to help find a cure and improved treatment options for bleeding disorders. Your gift helps us continue investing in research.
The Walk Experience
Our 2021 Unite Walk was an incredible opportunity to reunite as a community and to celebrate one another after spending nearly two years apart during the pandemic.
