About the event

The Neuse Pamlico Sound Women’s Coalition, Inc. (NPSWC), a 501 (c) 3 organization of professional women, is excited to announce the 8th annual 5K Run/Walk for Sickle Cell. This will be a hybrid run/walk consisting of an in-person and virtual 5k run/walk taking place March 9, 2024. The virtual participants must submit their timing information by end of the day on March 9th. “Why Sickle Cell?” Simple. SCD is a devastating blood disease affecting millions worldwide.
Greater than 100,000 are here in America. Each year, in NC about 120 infants are born with sickle cell disease and 4,000 infants are born with sickle cell trait or related trait SCD affects more than 5,000 patients and families in North Carolina. The disease occurs in about 1 of every 365 African American births and about 1 out of every 16,300 Hispanic-American births. In addition, people with SCD have less access to comprehensive care than people with many other genetic disorders. That is why we plan to use the money in our local communities. Together we will assist with treatment, transportation and the expense of other daily challenges that come with battling Sickle Cell. Your involvement will help highlight the importance of a community working together to make a
positive difference in the lives of others. PLEASE REGISTER FOR THE MARCH FOR SICKLE CELL 5K RUN/WALK TODAY!
