2020 Sickle Cell Matters Walk
Our Sickle Cell Matters Walk brings nearly 1,000 people together to raise consciousness around the most common genetic disorder in the United States. More than just an awareness event, we walk to raise funds, promote the need for additional research, and combat medical inequities often faced by sickle cell patients.
Be a part of the Warrior Stroll! New this year, the Warrior Stroll is a hustle/step-style performance that will open our Walk Day festivities. Warriors of all ages, abilities and musical preferences are welcome to participate in parts that suit their preference. Practice video will be available July 1st. The link will be sent to those who sign up.
Salute to Legacy Warriors
The 2020 Sickle Cell Matters Walk will also feature a tribute to our Legacy Warriors - individuals with sickle cell who'll be 50 years or older as of Dec. 31, 2020. Sign up to be recognized on our web site, in the day-of-event printed program (must be signed up by Sept. 1, 2020), and from the stage during remarks.
Our 2020 Sickle Cell Matters Walk features a special Warriors only performance and a salute to our Legacy Warriors (ages 50 and up).
