The purpose of the Chattanooga Scenic City Sickle Corporation is to increase the awareness of sickle cell disease, provide a network for adult sickle cell clients, and to develop a system of transitional services that will assist adolescents living with sickle cell disease through their transition into adulthood.
People should support this Cause because there are numerous amounts of people being born daily with this inherited blood disease who don't understand its severity. Although, there's no cure for sickle cell anemia, being diagnosed with this disease isn't a death sentence. This event will help educate the local community about sickle cell disease, its affects, and will help to equip people with the tools and literature needed to help combat the disease.
This Walk, Run for Sickle cell will benefit individuals in Chattanooga affected with the sickle cell disease. Funds raised from the event will also aid in the effort to increase awareness in Hamilton County.
Those interested in generously donating to the Walk, Run for Sickle Cell may do so immediately!
