It’s Pump It Up For Platelets! season – which means it’s time to lace up your sneakers and hit the road to raise awareness for and support the ITP community. Pump It Up For Platelets! walk/run events are easy to organize – and PDSA is here to help you every step of the way.
Due to continued concern surrounding COVID-19, we have decided once again to hold this year’s walk/run events in a virtual format. And while we all miss the opportunity to come together in person to support the ITP community, our virtual Pump It Up For Platelets! events have been quite popular and successful, gaining the attention of a much broader audience and increased participation. No matter where you are, it is easy to join in the fun!
We are stronger together! When you Pump It Up For Platelets!, you become a vital partner in the Platelet Disorder Support Association’s (PDSA) community of more than 30,000 patients, caregivers, advocates, world-renowned experts, and researchers who are passionate about creating better outcomes for people with ITP and other platelet disorders.
So let’s get moving and PUMP IT UP FOR PLATELETS!
Start your own event or join and support an existing walk/run today! The first 300 registrants will receive a PDSA swag bag.
PDSA will continue to monitor the changing pandemic landscape as we work together to raise awareness and support for the ITP community. As always, your health and safety is our priority – and we encourage you to adhere to current CDC guidelines if gathering in person, practicing recommended social distancing and following all mask and handwashing protocols.
EVERY DOLLAR MAKES A DIFFERENCE!
At PDSA no donation is too small, each and every dollar counts. Your contributions help fund groundbreaking patient-centered research, collaborative advocacy efforts with government agencies, patient education and support programs, and will ensure that patients and caregivers will never walk the ITP journey alone.
This engaged community comes together yearly to celebrate the ups and downs of ITP, scientific breakthroughs, and strides toward improved patient care and quality of life. Since 2010, these ITP Awareness Champions have impacted on advancing the cause!
