Over 100 supporters dedicated to the elimination of sickle cell disease rallied together for the annual 5K Walk for a cure for Sickle Cell. Walker’s warmed-up and trekked to the three-mile stint to the finish line through downtown Jacksonville.
Since 1971, the National Sickle Cell Disease Association of America (SCDAA) has served as the only voluntary national organization working full-time to resolve issues surrounding sickle cell disease and heighten community awareness of prevention.
The walk is usually held during September, National Sickle Cell Month due to North Florida hurricanes.
