The 2018 HAE IN-MOTION® 5K event in Providence, RI is dedicated in loving memory to Pam King, who passed away from metastatic breast cancer on June 16, 2018. Pam worked with the HAEA for the past 10 years as a consultant and most recently as our Chief Operating Officer. One of Pam's passions at the HAEA was for developing and growing the Scholarship Program, which provides financial support for HAE patients who are entering or attending college and seeking to improve their lives through academic achievement. All funds raised at this year's 5K event will go toward the HAEA Scholarship Program, being renamed the Pam King Scholarship program, in her memory.
What is HAE?
Hereditary Angioedema (HAE) is a very rare and potentially life-threatening genetic condition that occurs in about 1 in 10,000 to 1 in 50,000 people.HAE symptoms include edema (swelling) in various parts of the body, including: hands, feet, face and airway (throat).
Who is the HAEA?
The US HAEA is a non-profit patient advocacy organization serving Hereditary Angioedema patients. Our Association was founded and staffed by HAE patients and caregivers. We provide the HAE community with a personalized support network and a wide range of services to help them lead a normal life.
In 2018, we will celebrate our third year of holding the HAE IN-MOTION 5K® events. Each event promises to be a fantastic opportunity for family, friends, students, co-workers and colleagues to come together to spread awareness about HAE while supporting a worthy cause! We need your support to make these events a success, and to help raise awareness and much needed funds to allow the HAEA to continue with advocacy, education and research efforts. Your support is greatly appreciated!
