Welcome to the Walk With The Stars!
Walk With The Stars (WWTS) is SCDAA's largest event dedicated to finding better treatments and a cure for sickle cell disease, and to preventing the complications of this disorder through awareness, advocacy and research. As WWTS enter its fourth year, it is the only 5k benefiting sickle cell disease on a national level, creating more opportunities of impact for our 43 chapters across the United States. Last year we raised over $130,000! This year, with your help, we're taking SCD and SCT awareness to the next level with a goal of $200,000!!!!
Walk teams make a huge difference in helping us reach our fundraising goal, which is why we hope you'll form a team. Grab your friends, family and co-workers and walk together! Collect donations in honor of or in memory of a loved one, and join us! We'll support you every step of the way. You will also recieve an exclusive invite to the Team Captain Kickoff Rally!
