Important 2020 Gettin’ In The Game Junior National Championship Update

JNC is an annual event sponsored by CSL Behring to promote the health and well-being of patients who have bleeding disorders. The popularity of the event continues to grow each year, with last year’s event drawing upwards of 300 participants and volunteers. At CSL Behring protecting the health and safety of our employees, patients and healthcare providers is of paramount importance. While we have considered many options to host the event this fall, we have been unable to find a way to do so that follows the guidance from the CDC in protecting all involved.

It is with a heavy heart that we are postponing the 2020 JNC. Rest assured, we have every intention of reconvening in 2021 when we believe we will host one of the best JNC’s yet and we look forward with great anticipation to seeing you there! In the meantime, we are working with Perry Parker, a Professional Golfer living with Hemophilia A, to produce a series of instructional videos that can be used across the bleeding disorder community to promote the importance of physical health. Keep an eye out for more information to come.

We look forward to seeing the participants in person at the 2021 JNC in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Developed by CSL Behring, the Gettin' in the Game (GIG) Junior National Championship (JNC) was the first national golf, swimming and baseball competition designed specifically for the bleeding disorders community. The program gives children with bleeding disorders an opportunity to compete in golf, baseball and swimming and provides education and information-sharing opportunities for participants and their parents/caregivers.
