Saturday run benefits kids with blood disorders

Posted: April 29, 2013 - 2:01pm

If you walk or run in the Trot to Clot on Saturday, May 4 at Savannah Rapids Park, you could be helping Children’s Hospital of Georgia hemophilia patients go to Camp Wannaklot, a summer camp for kids with bleeding disorders.

“The camp is an awesome opportunity for hemophilia patients to be around other kids with similar disorders. It’s also a huge opportunity for them to learn how to take more control of their own health care, and to live fun, successful lives with this disorder,” said Cara Bryan, a social worker in the Pediatric Hematology and Oncology department at Georgia Regents University, who is helping to organize the walk to benefit local patients.

Onsite registration fees for the events range from $25 to $35 and include a Trot to Clot T-shirt while supplies last. There will also be a free Tot Trot for kids 2 and under. Activities begin at 7:30 a.m. Saturday in the parking area near the Magnolia Pavilion, 3300 Evans-to-Locks Road.

For information, call (770) 518-8277, or to register online, visit Hemophilia of Georgia’s Web site at www.hog.org/trot.
