Please join Sickle Cell Disease Association of America, Inc. (SCDAA) for our 6th Annual Walk With the Stars & Move-a-thon on June 22, 2019 at the scenic Canton Waterfront Park, in Baltimore, MD. Once again, we have included 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, and Zumba, just to name a few. 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 one of SCDAA's largest events dedicated to finding better treatments and a cure for sickle cell disease to prevent 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 46 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. When you participate in the Walk With the Stars, you are helping build a future where there is a universal 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 your 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 universal cure!
