Event description
Dreamsickle kids is hosting the 4th Annual Las Vegas Sickle Cell Walk

About this event

For the forth year in a row, Dreamsickle Kids Foundation, Inc will host the only Sickle Cell charity walk in Nevada. The walk is to raise funds to support the small grassroots organization in their continued mission to increase Sickle Cell Awareness in the state and provide support to those in Nevada that are impacted by this rare genetic disease. Dreamsickle Kids Foundation, advocates for better healthcare and healthcare access for patients with Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) in Nevada. Since 2018, Dreamsickle Kids has advocated for health equity for this small population of people. In this short time we have been able to assist in getting the first SCD bill passed in NV (AB254), a comprehensive SCD clinic, and have helped thousands impacted by SCD and rare diseases during the pandemic providing, food, clothing, temporary housing, and emergency financial assistance. Because of community support, we have been able to open the Aspiration Center with JET Foundation, it is the only SCD community center in the state and it boast a children's center, teen tech lounge, meeting center, wellness room, and a pantry with items ranging from food to toiletries courtesy of JET Foundation. This collaboration has expanded our programming from 4 to 22. This event, and events similar, help us continue to support the SCD community and keep the doors of the Aspiration Center open to be of support to the community, those with SCD and those underserved in the Valley.

Organizer Dreamsickle Kids Foundation

Organizer of 4th Annual Las Vegas Sickle Cell Walk

Gina Glass, the Executive Director and Founder of Dreamsickle Kids Foundation which is the 1st active Sickle Cell Disease nonprofit in Las Vegas. Established in 2018, Dreamsickle Kids Foundation has jump started  Nevada to take an active role in addressing disparities faced by the Sickle Cell population. The mother of two, with her youngest being affected by the genetic disease, the treatment of those with this illness is  very important. Though, unlike many other states, the population in Nevada is much smalle.r Gina , with the founding of Dreamsickle Kids has moved to make the support for this group of individuals just as important as any other cause in the state regardless of the size of those affected. the mission of the organization is to #MakeSickleCellPopular by shedding light on the treatment of people with Sickle Cell Disease not only in healhcare settings, but in the community , from home,school, to work. There is a lack of understanding about the severity of this disease and how its unpredictability can impact those who are affected on many fronts ,physically and mentally. Gina hopes that through the work of the organization , children like her daughter will grow in an environment where they do not have to be ashamed to disclose their illness, or fearful that the medical professionals charged with treating them will have little to no knowledge of  the disease or proper treatment which can prove to be fatal for people with Sickle Cell in Nevada and across the US.
