Description

 

We are pleased to invite you, your family, friends and  co-workers to join us  for  the  2011 Sickle Cell  Disease Association  of Broward County, Inc. Cell-ebration 5K RUN/WALK. We are honored to host  an  event  that brings a disease with  far  too   little  awareness  to  the forefront, while celebrating the relentless effort of those afflicted to live  fully functional lives. 

Once considered an African American disease, the whole story is that Sickle Cell Disease is a color-less, race-less,   nationality-less,   disease.  This blood   disease strikes Hispanics, South and Central  Americans, those from the Caribbean, and racial groups of European and Asian descents as well.  Sickle Cell Disease is a hereditary disease of the red  blood  cells, which    affects   the  oxygen  carrying  process  of   the  hemoglobin. The pain associated with the  disease, along with co-occurring  diseases and conditions causes frequent medical  crises for men, women, and children.

 

The   Cell-ebration  5K  RUN/WALK will  take place  on   September   17,  2011  at  Central  Broward   Regional Park in Sunrise, FL.  All proceeds will help ensure support services for individuals and families  living with Sickle Cell Disease, Sickle  Cell Trait  and  help advance  community  awareness programs. See you there and thank you in advance for your generous support.

 

Regards

Karen Smalls, President

Sickle Cell Disease Association of Broward County, Inc.
