September is National Sickle Cell Awareness Month and we are currently preparing for the 15th Annual Walter E. Brandon Sickle Cell Walk/ Run scheduled on Saturday September 22, 2012 in Fairmount Park across from the Please Touch Museum. The event is sponsored by the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America, Philadelphia/ Delaware Valley Chapter and AFSCME District Council 33, who has served as our main sponsor for the past 14 years.
This year’s registration can be completed online and donations accepted as well, by visiting our website at www.sicklecelldisorder.com and clicking on the walkathon registration button. Since this is our first year of adding a run, pre-registration is strongly encouraged. Please help support our efforts by sharing this information with your network. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact our office.
