During the week of 10-16 October 2021 we celebrated Bleeding Disorders Awareness Week. The week is an opportunity for the community, Haemophilia Foundations, Haemophilia Treatment Centres, stakeholders and schools to take part in a campaign and activities to raise awareness about haemophilia, von Willebrand disease and related inherited bleeding disorders throughout Australia.
During Bleeding Disorders Awareness Week there were some great activities for everyone to participate in, which could be done virtually and face-to-face.
Our national virtual Red Classic event saw people participate in all different ways – ride, scoot, walk even horse riding! Thanks to our participants for some great photos.

Our Red Cake Day cupcake packs were very popular.
At Jaylin’s childcare the cupcake packs were a special highlight, where they baked and ate as a group.
