Welcome to our
16th Annual Sickle Cell 5K Walk/Run site!
There are hundreds of families in Central Indiana living with the burden of Sickle Cell Disease. Many of those families need additional support which Martin Center strives to provide. Your participation in the 16th Annual Sickle Cell 5K Walk/Run will enable Martin Center to fill those gaps with quality supportive services.
On June 23, 2012, we will hold this year's walk at the beautiful Riverside Park located at 2420 E. Riverside Dr. in Indianapolis, IN.
The timeline for the event is as follows:
Warm Up 7:45am-8am
Race Begins 8:05am
The Annual Sickle Cell 5k Walk/Run is widely seen as Martin Center’s premier event. Proceeds benefit Martin Center Programs which aim to aid and enhance the lives of those affected by Sickle Cell. This includes Sickle Cell education, family support, food pantry, monthly support groups, and advocacy. The proceeds also directly fund the Angela Watson scholarship that provides funding for post-secondary education for clients with Sickle Cell Disease.
There are many ways that you can participate:
Register: from $15 for youth to $30 for late registration
Donate: from $1
Sponsor: from $500
