Since the Walk is now virtual, registration is optional. You can turn your registration fee into a donation, join/create a team or become a fundraiser.

Once you create a team, you'll get an email for page set up. We also have step-by-step instructions here to personalize your page. 

Your company sponsorship   heightens the visibility of your commitment to social responsibility. The return on investment benefits us all.

This year we're offering two vendor experiences: Both provide virtual promotion, one also offers limited sponsor benefits.

Are you a sickle cell warrior who's 40 or older? We invite you to join our Legacy Salute! Sign up here by 9/5 to be included.

Click here to join in the virtual walk program on Sept. 19th

Our 2020 Sickle Cell Matters Walk will still raise consciousness around the most common genetic disorder in the U.S. But this year it'll happen from wherever you are. More than just an awareness event, we join efforts to raise funds, promote the need for additional research, and combat medical inequities often faced by sickle cell patients.

We still need your support.

Register, donate, sign up to fundraise, or start a team today!​​
