NEW YORK, April 17 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Hemophilia Foundation (NHF) today announced its first-ever national fundraising and awareness campaign -- the Hemophilia Walk, presented nationally by Baxter Healthcare Corporation. As part of this initiative, the NHF will partner with local chapters in five cities across the U.S. to raise much needed funding to help find better treatments and cures for hemophilia and other bleeding and clotting disorders, increase awareness about these conditions and promote early diagnosis, and provide education to help those with bleeding disorders avoid complications.

The Hemophilia Walk will kick off in New York City on June 1, and Walks are scheduled in four other cities on the following days:

-- Houston, TX - September 6

-- Cleveland, OH - September 20

-- Phoenix, AZ - September 28

-- Raleigh, NC - October 18

"We are very excited about announcing the launch of this first-ever nationwide fundraising initiative," said Howard Balsam, interim chief executive officer, National Hemophilia Foundation. "These walks will help the NHF on both a local and national level, advancing and strengthening our overall mission of finding better treatments and cures and, until that time, helping all those with bleeding and clotting disorders live longer more healthy lives."

The official Hemophilia Walk Web site, http://www.hemophilia.org/walk/, provides a quick and easy way to learn more about the individual Hemophilia Walks and for participants to register for the Walk of their choice.

Once registered, participants can conduct individual fundraising efforts as part of a team, or by creating a team of their own. To help make this process even easier, the NHF has partnered with Active.com to provide an easy
