About the Event

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 Sickle Cell Initiative (MCSCI) strives to provide. Your participation in the 21st Annual Sickle Cell 5K Walk/Run will enable MCSCI to fill those gaps with quality supportive services.

The Annual Sickle Cell 5K Walk/Run is our premier fundraising event. Proceeds benefit our 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.

Did you know...

  • each registration fee provides a six month supply of Gatorade to one of our Sickle Cell Clients?
  • when you raise just $100 you provide ten families with access to food from our food pantry?
  • When you raise $250, you give one family full access to our Transportation Assistance Service.


Won't you please join the chain to stop the pain of Sickle Cell?
