Rutherford County, TN - A 5k run and walk are scheduled to take place in Murfreesboro on Saturday, April 8th. The upcoming event will help to fund Camp Freedom, a special camp for children who have a variety of rare bleeding disorders... That was Amanda Wilson, Executive Director of the Tennessee Hemophilia & Bleeding Disorders Foundation. Wilson told WGNS News the 5th annual “Blazin’ for Bleeders” 5k will be at Gateway Island, with the 5k run beginning at 9AM and the fun walk beginning at 9:05 AM.
The upcoming 5k enables children with rare bleeding disorders to attend Camp Freedom, while also building new friendships... Campers build life-long bonds with others who have similar disorders at Camp Freedom. This summer, the camp will be held July 8th through the 14th.
More than 800 families across the state benefit from the The Tennessee Hemophilia & Bleeding Disorders Foundation... Based in Murfreesboro, the organization’s office is inside the Truist Bank building at 201 East Main Street. Sign up for the annual run or walk HERE.
The THBDF was formed in 1970 by patients, parents and health care professionals to provide support, advocacy, and education to families affected by bleeding disorders who receive care from a Tennessee Hemophilia Treatment Center. Learn More HERE.
