The FVLD hosts several special events throughout the year as a fundraising tool. All capital generated from donations, sponsorship and participation goes towards the FVLD’s projects and furthering the mission of advancing vein and lymphatic care.

Fun Run & Walk

Join your colleagues and friends in the vein and lymphatic care community on a beautiful Arizona morning for a fun trip around the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort and Spa this November. The course offers both a 5K and a one mile option. Your participation will help raise awareness for venous and lymphatic disease and all proceeds support FVLD investment in initiatives to advance the treatment of venous and lymphatic disease.

Silent & Live Auction

The Annual Silent & Live Auction is a fun and entertaining way to support the important mission of the FVLD through either donating items or bidding on items. The auction culminates on Saturday evening, Nov. 9 with a live auction at Bonnie & Clyde's Night Out.

Donated items include medical devices, services and training, vacation getaways, art, jewelry, sports memorabilia and more. Each year the Silent Auction features something for everyone.

Enjoy this time to socialize and unwind after the day, as well as participate in the raffle. All proceeds from the toast will go to the FVLD.
