The 8th Annual Walk and Bike for Sickle Cell is an event to raise awareness, inspire, and ignite positive energy throughout the community, and everyone is encouraged to attend. Sickle Cell is the most common genetic disease within the United States, and approximately 300,000 babies are born with it worldwide every year; yet is one of the least funded diseases.

Registration includes: T-shirt, water bottle, tote bag, lunch
Adults (18+): $30

Register in advance online at http://mssctf.org/events-thewalk.html
Proceeds from the event fund an annual summer camp program to support youth who battle the disease and their siblings. Campers attend absolutely free of charge!
The Metropolitan Seattle Sickle Cell Task Force is a network of families who either battle sickle cell disease, have lost a loved one to sickle cell, are caring for someone with sickle cell, or who have been led to support those impacted by this disease.
