2014 Hemophilia Walk

Join Our Team!


2014 DFW Hemophilia Walk


WHAT: The Hemophilia Walk is NHF’s largest event dedicated to finding better treatments and cures for bleeding and clotting disorders, and to preventing the complications of these disorders through awareness, education, advocacy and research.


WHY: Hemophilia is very rare. Fewer than 20,000 people in the United State have hemophilia. However, hemophilia is very, very expensive, often costing patients upwards of $250,000 a year for the medicines needed to help the blood clot normally. We are asking you to join our Texas Central Hemophilia Association “TexCen” team and to raise awareness and funds for local families.

WHERE: Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie

Check-in begins at 8:30am / Walk begins at 10:00am


DISTANCE: 1 mile (short route) / 5k (3.1 miles long route)


HOW: Sign up to join our team online by visiting www.hemophilia.org/walk. Select the walk in TX (DFW) and join, register or donate.

VOLUNTEER: Help us make our event a success! Volunteers are appreciated before and/or during the Walk. As a non-profit, TexCen can also offer community service hours to anyone who volunteers.

HFA Choice Project

CHOICE (Community Having Opportunity to Influence Care Equity) is a project driven by Hemophilia Federation of America (HFA) and supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). CHOICE collects information through an online and paper-based survey.

This survey collects information regarding health experiences of people who have a doctor-diagnosed bleeding disorder and do not receive care at a federally-funded hemophilia treatment center (HTC). HFA's goal for the CHOICE Project is to put the survey results to work to improve the lives of those in the bleeding disorders community.
