HAE Canada Global Walk Success 2018
As you may know, the HAEi 2018 Global Conference was held in Vienna, Austria, this past May. While participants were in Vienna, they had the opportunity to take part in the HAEi Jakobsweg Walk to help raise HAE awareness. Along with the Jakobsweb Walk, HAEi encouraged people across the globe to participate in the HAE Global Walk and submit their steps from their home country. The steps were tracked on the HAEi website dedicated to the Walk. Canadians heard the request loud and clear and managed to nab the top spot for taking the most steps, as you can see from the graphic from HAEi’s website:
One reason for Canada’s success is that HAE Canada reached out to different stakeholders in the HAE community. We want to thank everyone who took up the challenge and participated the HAE Global Walk; we are so very pleased and proud of the effort everyone put forward. HAEi was also pleased with our efforts and asked that we submit an article for their newsletter, sharing how we managed to take the lead.
We would also like to take his opportunity to share a wonderful You Tube 2018 Global Conference video that was made during the Global Conference. It does a fantastic job showing the energy and enthusiasm shared by all who were lucky enough to participate in this inspiring conference.
Thank you again for helping Canada raise awareness for HAE, it was greatly appreciated.
