Organiser's Description

Because Sickle Cell Awareness Matters
 
Breaking The Sickle Cell Cycle Foundation, Inc. cordially invites you to the 3rd annual Sickle Cell Warrior Walk/Run 5K!  The Sickle Cell Warrior Walk/Run 5K is an inspiring, family-friendly event to unite the Nashville community and surrounding areas in bringing awareness to sickle cell disease and to create long-lasting relationships to help support members of the sickle cell community.  Sickle cell disease is a painful genetic blood disorder that is known to disproportionately impact minority populations, but any person can have sickle cell disease or carry the trait that is responsible for causing the disease. The goal is to increase community awareness of sickle cell disease and encourage people to learn their sickle cell trait status and use the information to make informed healthcare and family planning decisions.

All participants must complete the course by 9:00am.
