Camp Superfly II Winners Announced

The winners of the second annual Camp Superfly were recently announced by Baxter
Healthcare Corporation. The national competition involves children and adults with a
bleeding or clotting disorder from NHF chapters, with the participation of hemophilia
treatment centers (HTCs). Team members collect points for their team by undergoing a
series of mental and physical challenges during a three-month period.

Teams win grant money for summer camp programs for children with bleeding or
clotting disorders. This year, teams competed in three divisions, based on the number of
participants. In each division, first place teams won $30,000, second place teams won
$10,000 and third place teams won $5,000. The remaining 18 teams received honorable
mention and a grant of $500 each. The money is used to improve existing camps, start a
new camp or send a larger number of kids to camp.

The 2006 Camp Superfly II winners are:

Climbers Division
First Place: Camp Warren Jyrch of Illinois (Chicago, IL)
Second Place: Southern California Honey Bees (Pasadena, CA)
Third Place: Indiana Hemophilia Hornets (Indianapolis, IN)

Flyers Division
First Place: Lone Star Butterflies (Houston, TX)
Second Place: Iowa Yellow jackets (Iowa City, IA)
Third Place: Northern California Green Hornets (Oakland, CA)

Explorers Division
First Place: Heartland Hornets (Omaha, Nebraska)
Second Place: Maryland Fireflies (Baltimore. MD)
Third Place: South Carolina Praying Mantises (Greer. SC)

“The grant money will allow us to add new programs and options to our summer camps,”
said Robert Robinson, executive director of the Hemophilia Foundation of Illinois. “The
competition is an opportunity to raise awareness of the important of camping for children
in our community.”
