Welcome to the Florida Hemophilia Association’s 7th Annual Walk in the Jungle! Much more than just a fundraising event, the Walk in the Jungle brings together individuals affected by bleeding disorders, their families, friends, supporters and a diverse range of others who want to enjoy an amazing day at Jungle Island while supporting a worthy cause. It attracts people of every age and background from parents with infants in tow to grandparents and everything in between. Remember, all registered walkers get to spend the entire day at Jungle Island for free!
The 2016 Walk in the Jungle was our biggest walk yet with over 1,200 registered walkers and 45 teams! We also reached an extraordinary goal of raising over $100,000 to support the variety of educational programs, vital services and advocacy efforts that are central to FHA’s mission. To see just how much fun the walk is, click here: http://floridahemophilia.org/video-gallery/ to watch the video!
We’ve set our sights high to raise over $100,000 again, but we can’t do it without you! Create a team and have your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers and anyone else you know help you not only raise funds but also raise awareness for hemophilia and other bleeding disorders. If someone you know has already created a team, join their team and support them! On the day of the Walk, there will be food, refreshments, exhibits and souvenirs. There will also be plenty of fun including a photo booth, face painting, characters, MC Alex and more! WSVN Anchor/Reporter Lorena Estrada has happily agreed to be the Honorary Walk Chair again this year! And even if you can’t make it to Jungle Island on April 30, you can still support the Walk by joining as a virtual walker!
