About This Activity

February 9, 2015
Dear Sickle Cell Supporters,
This communique is to let you know how much we appreciate your support and ask that you continue to pray for children and families living with sickle cell disease and sickle cell trait.
Please note, at the direction of the Sickle Cell Miami Board of Directors, the Sickle Cell 5000 Run/Walk scheduled at Sun Life Stadium on March 14, 2015, is postponed. Due to construction at the stadium, the inability to provide a certified course, logistical challenges which may inhibit a quality racing experience are a few of the reasons which led to this decision.
Although, the Board of Directors and I note this was a difficult decision, we apologize for any inconvenience it may have caused to those planning to attend. Moreover, in lieu of having to postpone the event, we are humbled and encouraged by your continued support of the various other programs we provide for our children, families, and the community – community education presentations, Christmas Toy Drive, Breakfast with Santa, Boggy Creek Summer Camp, Sickle Cell Movie Night, etc.
For those who’ve registered online, refunds will be provided, upon request. However, if there is no refund request, the funds will be utilized to help underwrite the costs of various Sickle Cell Miami programs. Above all, when a new Sickle Cell 5000 Run/Walk date has been confirmed, we will send out the requisite communications, invitations, and press releases.
If you have any questions, please email your inquiry to
Harold Ford
Executive Director
