HSC 5K Turkey Trot Run/Walk for Bleeding Disorders

Turkey Trott 2016








Thank you to everyone who participated, sponsored and donated to this years event! We appreciate all your support.

Join us on November 3, 2018 as we return for another fun “Trot”!

2018 Information will be out in early fall.

The Turkey Trot is the Chapter’s 5K Walk/Run fundraiser which is held in November during the Thanksgiving holiday season. Hosted by Hemophilia of South Carolina, the Turkey Trot is the Chapter’s largest fundraiser.

Why We Walk/Run?

As you walk/run your giblets off, you will be supporting hundreds of individuals and families in South Carolina affected by hemophilia, von Willebrand Disease (vWD) and other rare bleeding disorders. The proceeds from this event will support the programs and services of Hemophilia of South Carolina which provides direct aid for our community. You will also help us raise needed funds to support our advocacy initiatives and research of the National Hemophilia Foundation. View our First Giving Home Page for additional information.

Harvest Hope Food Bank LogoAs our walk is held during the holiday season, we encourage our runners and volunteers to bring a non-perishable food item to benefit the Harvest Hope Food Bank of Columbia during this season of Thanksgiving. Our past efforts have supported over 50lbs of needed items each year. Thank you! Visit Harvest Hope of Columbia.

What’s With The Red Tie Around The Turkey’s Neck?

“The Bleeding Disorders National Symbol”

The color red is a powerful color. It conveys strength, leadership, courage, determination, empathy, and love – qualities that could also be used to describe the bleeding disorders community. For all those affected, growing up with a bleeding disorder can be a very isolating experience because of a common lack of awareness and understanding of the disorder. The RED TIE is designed to start a conversation about inheritable bleeding disorders. The red tie symbolizes the blood ties that bind our community. There are more than 3 million Americans diagnosed with hemophilia, von Willebrand disease, or rare factor deficiencies, all of which prevent the blood from clotting normally.

“Turkey Todd” is supporting the community by taking the Red Tie Challenge and running with his red tie on… will you?
