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."
