Thank you to the amazing HAE Community here in Canada – Canada won the Virtual 2020 HAE Global Walk; an annual event organized by the HAE International team. Many people from different parts of the country walked, ran, swam, or maybe even practiced yoga or did some jumping jacks, to help raise HAE awareness in Canada – collectively we logged a whopping 7,748,272 steps! We may have all exercised alone to stay safe, but this was a huge national team effort. What a wonderful accomplishment during COVID-19.
Thank you to the many patients, caregivers, family, friends and healthcare providers who logged their steps for the Global Walk. Your energy and enthusiasm were truly wonderful. We would like to also recognize the teams from our sponsors, CSL Behring and Takeda, who put on their walking shoes to help ensure Canada remained in the lead throughout the challenge. Your time and dedication to the Walk were greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Increased awareness brings better care, earlier and accurate diagnosis which ultimately allows patients to lead a healthy life. Thank you to everyone who did their part to help raise HAE awareness.
