Every day, 274 people die of blood clots in America alone. That’s 274 deaths daily that can be prevented! Blood clots kill more people each year than AIDS, Breast Cancer and motor vehicle accidents combined. Blood clots do not discriminate, regardless of age, race, or gender we are all at risk. Knowing the signs, symptoms and risk factors saves lives and prevents lifelong pain and disability.
The funds raised through registration and donations will go towards the National Blood Clot Alliance to help continue their lifesaving mission of awareness and prevention of deadly blood clots.
