In 2008, Baxter took a leadership role as the National Presenting Sponsor as NHF launched its Hemophilia Walk program. This initial investment in the program enabled us to lay the foundation for what would prove to be an extremely successful nationwide fundraising event, hosting 10,000 walkers, engaging 30,000 individual donors and raising more than $2.6 million in the first three years.
Baxter has renewed its dedication as the National Presenting Sponsor, with an increased cash sponsorship commitment of $1.25 million during the next three years. In addition, Baxter’s partnership has provided additional support for Walk chapters via team fundraising, media outreach campaigns, and fun items and activities at each Walk event.
NHF is pleased to have Baxter as the National Presenting Sponsor again in 2011, leading our impressive group of national sponsors, which includes: Pacesetter Sponsor, Bayer HealthCare; Official Sponsors, Grifols and Talecris Biotherapeutics; and Supporting Sponsor, Biogen Idec Hemophilia.
