Why I Walk
You walk for many reasons; your child's bleeding disorder, your bleeding disorder, your friend, neighbor, coworker, colleague, etc.. You walk because you know it provides education and support for our unique community. You walk so families and patients that struggle with access to appropriate diagnosis and treatment will know they are heard; you walk because kids need to learn to use their medications independently so they can live their best lives and achieve their utmost potential. We want to hear all the reasons YOU walk!

I walk for the Unite for Bleeding Disorders for many reasons:
- To raise funds for the Hemophilia Foundation of Northern California - because I want to ensure they can continue to provide the services and access to care for other families with bleeding disorders.
- To raise awareness for bleeding disorders in my own community and for those who see us at the walk.
- Because the walk is a fun family event and has become a family tradition since 2013!
- For my son Keiji, who is a mild type A hemophiliac, to show him that there are others like him and that he can do something to give back to others with bleeding disorders in need.
- Because it’s our way to give back and pay it forward. It’s good to volunteer and give back to a great cause, one that is so deeply personal to our family.
