About the Event

The inaugural Cure Sickle Cell Walk & Family Fun Day launched as a virtual event in 2020 with two goals: to raise awareness of sickle cell disease, and to support critical research and lifesaving treatments to help individuals with sickle cell disease to live longer, healthier lives. Plans are now underway for our second Cure Sickle Cell event to be held – LIVE AND IN-PERSON – in May/June of 2022. Check back in early 2022 for specific event details and how you can get involved!


Join Us Next Year

If you didn’t get a chance to join us virtually in 2020, submit your name and email and we’ll send you information about Cure Sickle Cell 2022 as it becomes available.

Every day, we see the painful and life-threatening complications sickle cell disease causes, and every day, we work toward a future without sickle cell disease. With support of philanthropy, we will make that future a reality and change so many lives. Thank you!
