The Need to Lead volunteers were back into action this past weekend for the 8th annual New England Hemophilia Association (NEHA) walk. This year’s walk was the most successful one NEHA has ever had. Last year, the organization set a goal to raise $160,000 this year. Impressively, they were able to raise over $210,000, which blew past their original goal. Along with being so successful with fundraising the 2017 NEHA walk also set a new record for participants with over 1,500 walkers. All the money raised is used to pay for NEHA’s Emergency assistance program, which helps serve people in the community affected by hemophilia, sending families to their annual family camp and advocacy programs. Need to Lead is proud to have been apart of such a historic event for the New England Hemophilia Association for the eighth straight year.
During the event, Need to Lead volunteers could be found scattered throughout the grounds. We had our own kid’s zone set up where families could come play games such as soccer, ring toss, corn hole and even get their faces painted. NTL volunteers also aided the NEHA staff at the registration table to pass out t-shirts to all the participants at the walk.
Need to Lead also had three new volunteers join in their first event. These volunteers included Cam Enright, Anthony Eldoueihy, and Ryan Lewis . Welcome to the family guys! Need to Lead would like to thank all of the volunteers who were able to coming to the NEHA walk and continue to make a difference in our community.
