"We're On the Move for Sickle Cell!
Please join Sickle Cell Disease Association of America, Inc. (SCDAA) for our 7th Annual Walk With the Stars & Move-a-thon on July 11, 2020. For the first time this year, our walk will be entirely virtual. Once again, we have added a new theme by incorporating different types of movement because we're on the move for sickle cell! You, your friends, and family members can participate in this wonderful event not only by walking and running but also with jump roping, hula hooping, all while safe at home. We look forward to all the fun and new ways individuals can support this event by moving to fight sickle cell disease (SCD).
Walk With The Stars & Move-a-thon is SCDAA's largest event dedicated to finding better treatments and a cure for sickle cell disease, and to preventing the complications of this disorder through awareness, advocacy and research. This event is also the only 5K benefiting sickle cell disease on a national level, creating more opportunities of impact for our 49 chapters across the United States.
To date, we have raised over $696,147.84 for better treatments and improvements in the quality of health for individuals, families and communities affected by sickle cell disease. Last year we raised over $140,000! This year, with your help, we're taking SCD and SCT awareness to the next level with a goal of $150,000!
When you participate in the Walk With the Stars, you are helping build a future where there is a cure for sickle cell. Walk teams make a huge difference in helping us reach our fundraising goal, which is why we hope you'll form a team. Collect donations in honor of or in memory of a loved one, and join us! We'll support you every step of the way. United with every walker, runner, and shaker and mover, together we can raise the necessary funds which will get us that much closer to finding a cure!
