Run/Walk for Sickle Cell
Saturday, March 14, 2020 at Union Point Park-
The Neuse Pamlico Sound Women’s Coalition, Inc. (NPSWC), a 501 (c) 3 organization of professional women, is excited to announce the 5th annual 5K Walk/Run for Sickle Cell on March 14, 2020.
“Why Sickle Cell?” Simple. SCD is a devastating blood disease affecting millions worldwide. Greater than 100,000 are here in America. SCD affects more than 5,000 patients and families in North Carolina, with approximately 80 infants being diagnosed in newborn screenings each year. The disease occurs in about 1 of every 365 African-American births and about 1 out of every 16,300 Hispanic-American births. In addition, people with SCD have less access to comprehensive care than people with many other genetic disorders. That is why we plan to use the money in our local communities. Together we will assist with treatment, transportation and the expense of other daily challenges that come with battling Sickle Cell.
Your involvement will help highlight the importance of a community working together to make a positive difference in the lives of others. PLEASE REGISTER FOR THE MARCH FOR SICKLE CELL 5K WALK/RUN TODAY!
