THE STORY:

The 4th Annual Sickle Cell Stroll 2015 is a walk at Hudlin Park to raise awareness of sickle cell disease. It is a family friendly event designed to celebrate the lives of those with sickle cell disease and to educate the community about the disease. Hudlin Park is located at 700 S Kingshighway Blvd, St. Louis, MO 63110.

 

Whether you have sickle cell, know someone who does or would like to show your support, come stroll with us! Registration for the event is free, but required. And, if you donate or fundraise $25 or more ($10 for each child), you will receive a limited edition 2015 Stroll t-shirt! Prizes to be given away throughout the day including a prize for the team with most registered participants, the team/individual with the highest fundraising total and most spirited team/individual.

 

Proceeds from the event will allow Sickle Cell Association to bring awareness and carry out its mission to support those living with sickle cell disease while working to eliminate the disease through collaborations on education, research, and resources.
