Sickle Cell 5K Walk/Run - 22nd Annual - Jade Parkerís Sickle Cell SquadSaturday, June 23, 2018 in Indianapolis, IN at Riverside Park
A 16 month-old baby sits in the middle of the floor, afraid to take the wobbly steps she's perfected over the last 3 months. Using the only voice she has, she screams uncontrollably at the top of her lungs as an unknown pain pulsates throughout her body. †This is the pain that not even a mother's embrace can make better; for her baby girl is experiencing her very first sickle cell crisis.
Almost 26 years later, I, Jade, (the same baby girl enduring her first crisis) am now a college graduate, Registered Nurse, and entrepreneur with my own startup business, ROJOrganics.
But it doesn't stop there. Many like me--myself included--still need assistance in continuing to fight sickle cell everyday to lead a life of excellence and to overcome.
With your help:
- 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.
We thank you for your giving, time, and assistance!
Jade Parkerís Sickle Cell Squad has raised $0.00.
