Sickle Cell Fundraiser
Sickle cell anemia is an inherited red blood cell disorder in which there aren't enough healthy red blood cells to carry oxygen throughout your body. Normally, the flexible, round red blood cells move easily through blood vessels. In sickle cell anemia, the red blood cells are shaped like sickles or crescent moons.
One of our founders, David Lingisi, has been impacted by Sickle Cell both personally, and through his friends and family. Our Sickle Cell fundraisers raise money to support families in our community who are suffering with the disease currently, or have lost someone to this disease.
