Virtual Hemophilia Run/Walk

Sun November 8 - Sun November 22 Your Town, NJ 00000 US
Description

To keep our community safe, this year’s Hemophilia Association of New Jersey’s Run/Walk will be our 1st ever Virtual Experience! Our annual community event and fundraising efforts are critical for supporting our bleeding disorders community served by HANJ and we are most appreciative of your ongoing support. We promise to deliver a socially engaging community experience for all with this event! 

Who does the event support?

The Hemophilia Association of New Jersey is a nonprofit 501 (c) (3) organization with a mission to improve the quality of life for persons with a bleeding disorder by providing and maintaining access to highly qualified medical treaters and successfully proven medical regimens. Founded in August 1971 by 10 concerned families, we offer assistance to persons with a bleeding disorder and their families from our office located in East Brunswick, New Jersey. During this unusual and difficult time dealing with COVID-19 the bleeding disorders community are even more vulnerable and isolated.  Funds raised from this yearly community event are critically needed to support those served by HANJ. To learn more about HANJ call us at 732-249-6000 or visit us at www.hanj.org 

What is Hemophilia

Hemophilia is a rare disorder in which your blood doesn't clot normally because it lacks sufficient blood-clotting proteins (clotting factors). Hemophilia is a mostly inherited genetic disorder that impairs the body's ability to make blood clots, a process needed to stop bleeding. This results in people bleeding for a longer time after an injury, easy bruising, and an increased risk of bleeding inside joints or the brain.

Get Your Personalized Bib Number

Participants in live fitness events wear bib #s during the event. We hope you will print yours and wear it when completing your run or walk. It’s one extra way for us all to be connected through our shared Virtual Experience! As a bonus, we'll be able to spread the word about bleeding disorders further than ever before as you run or walk through your neighborhood. 

To access and print your personalized bib # through your RunSignUp registration, follow these steps:

  • Log-in to https://runsignup.com/Race/NJ/Anywhere/HemophiliaRunWalk and go to your profile by clicking the circle in the upper right corner. 
  • Click on the last option for "View Pre-Race Bib"
  • Voila, your bib will appear! There is a prominent Print button above the bib image. You can also use the Print button to save your bib as a pdf if you'd like to share it on social media or save it for a future time. 
  • Alternatively, you can print a blank bib (without your name and assigned #) and decorate with sharpie, pen, crayons, bedazzler, etc! Add your team name, a message of hope or support, or a drawing...anything you feel inspired to include!
  • No printer? Use any paper you have and create your own bib #!
  • Once your bib # is ready to go, you can cut out your bib, poke holes through the 4 corners, and attach to your event day top. Usually, bib #s are attached to a participant’s shirt with safety pins through the 4 corner pin holes. Pins will be available when you pick-up your souvenir event tech tee. You can get creative and use anything you have at home though such as decorative pins, string, badge holders, or tape!

Event Rules & Safety

Safety! We want each and every participant to have a fun, healthy, and safe event experience! In these unprecedented times, we as your event organizers, are not able to look after your safety at our event site or on the run and walk courses. Please ensure your own safety and the safety of others while participating. 

HEALTH
ALWAYS listen to your body while engaging in fitness activities. As per the CDC's website: "We now know from recent studies that a significant portion of individuals with coronavirus lack symptoms (“asymptomatic”) and that even those who eventually develop symptoms (“pre-symptomatic”) can transmit the virus to others before showing symptoms." With this is mind, we do ask that YOU put public health and safety ABOVE competition and athletic goals at this time. While out running or walking, please make sure you and others you encounter on your chosen path are maintaining the minimum recommended social distancing gap of 6'. 

FUN, FITNESS, & FUNDRAISING
Above all, get out (or stay in) and have a great time while supporting HANJ and personal fitness! Your registration, team recruitment, and fundraising efforts ARE making a difference for the bleeding disorders community in New Jersey. While our normal routines may have shifted, still have FUN, be FIT, and SUPPORT ONE ANOTHER!
