NHF is excited to announce that we are launching a national field day event this September. We have registration options for all ages – including adults! After signing up, you’ll receive a customized field day box full of games and activities to play with your friends and family. You can host your field day event any time between September 15th and October 12th.
We want to promote a safe, active lifestyle for people living with an inheritable blood disorder while also educating the larger community about what it means to live with an inheritable blood disorder. We want people to know that our community members can still play and live just like anyone else.
NHF extends a huge thank you to the Kopenitz family for creating this event, alongside NHF, in honor of Steven and Adam. We hope you will join us from your local community to raise awareness and funds for inheritable blood disorders.

Frequently Asked Questions
A field day is a fun-filled, event typically held in many schools across the country. A field day gives kids the chance to celebrate the school year, show some class pride and spend a day being active. At NHF, we are adopting the field day event and creating an experience for people of all ages to celebrate our community, raising money for those living with inheritable blood disorders, and break down some of the misconceptions of inheritable blood disorders. We want people to know that those living with an inheritable blood disorder can live healthy, active lifestyles.
You can participate in 3 easy steps:
- Register for the event here. We’ll send you a field day box with the games and supplies to get started.
- Ask you friends, family and neighbors to donate to your fundraising page.

Your support of this event helps educate communities across the country about what it means to live with an inheritable blood disorder.
