Event description


Join us on Sat. June 29th for our 2nd annual Walk4SickleCell!

Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) is a disease that causes red blood cells to become hard and sticky. SCD is known for causing severe pain crisis, many requiring medical treatment and often hospitalization. Those living with SCD are not defined by the pain and complications of this disease, but by their incredible strength and resiliency.

The purpose of our annual walk is to

  1. Celebrate World Sickle Cell Day (June 19th)

  2. Support the mission and work of Sickle Cell Foundation of MN

  3. Celebrate the warriors in our community who work hard to live well with Sickle Cell!

Please support this event as we come together as a community on Saturday June 29th at Powderhorn Park to walk, run, or roll for a cause!

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Street parking is available at Powderhorn Park near the registration/check-in table (E. 33rd St & 14th Ave S.). You may also want to consider walking, biking, or using public transportation if you are able.

5K (~3 miles) seems like a long way. What if I have young children or have to stop early?

That's just fine! Each lap around the park is approximately 1 mile. If you have a health condition, are with small children, or just aren't up for multiple laps, you can stop anytime.

Do I need to register children and/or others in my group?

Yes, registering everyone in the group allows us to better plan for the event.

Where do donated funds go?

100% of funds raised will go to Sickle Cell Foundation of Minnesota and are used to further the mission of improving the lives of individuals and communities affected by sickle cell disease.
