HAE Global Walk

Since the introduction of 16 May as the global HAE awareness day, HAEi has been organizing annual events to bring knowledge of this special day to people around the world.

In 2016 – in the weeks leading up to the HAE Global Conference in Madrid, Spain – HAEi introduced the HAE Global Walk and every year since then there has been a similar campaign for everyone interested in helping to spread HAE awareness.

The concept is simple: You can participate wherever you are. All you need to do is to walk any distance you like wherever you like – on your own or together with others – and then go to the campaign website at www.haeday.org and enter your walk. A small walk alone around your block, a weekend stroll with friends or an event with many participants – it’s all up to the one walking. Every step counts.
