Running to find a cure for hemophilia

This weekend, the 10 th Annual Clot Trot Fun Run is happening at Howard Amon Park in Richland to help raise awareness for Hemophilia.

Hemophilia is a genetic bleeding disorder that prevents the blood from clotting normally. Hemophilia is rare, but it’s estimated more than 400,000 people are affected with the disease. Of those, experts say 75% of people with hemophilia worldwide receive poor treatment or have no access to treatment at all.

The Clot Trot, which originally started 10 years ago as a Boy Scouts project, is a 10K, 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run starts at 10:00AM and race day registration begins at 8:00AM.

Funds raised at this event are donated to the hemophilia organizations and towards finding a cure.
