No event set in your area? Scheduling conflict preventing you from attending a scheduled event? Are your family and friends spread out all over the country? Or maybe right now you’re living your life by that number – your platelet count – and it’s so low that the fatigue has robbed you of your energy. Whatever roadblock you’ve encountered as an attempt to divert your drive to attend one of our inspiring events doesn’t have to stop you from being a part of the cause!
Organize a Pump It Up For Platelets Virtual Walk!
Angela R. from California organized a virtual walk in honor of her niece and ITP Warrior, Aandrea. With family scattered around the country, it was impossible for them all to attend the event in her area so Angela created a virtual team called the Ugly Potatoes and enlisted her family and friends to support their ITP Warrior. They all walked or ran in their local communities, fundraised, raised awareness and received the same benefits as the local event participants including a Circle of Hope Membership.
I set up a “virtual team” in honor of my niece, Aandrea and while we couldn't actually BE there, we walked and ran in our own communities!
