On Saturday, September 23rd the Greated Boston Sickle Cell Association Inc. organized the event to raise money and bring awareness, educational and research about the disease to the community at large. With over 500 people in attendance the event was held at Franklin Park.

September is Sickle Cell Awareness month that's why the walk is held each September and is the biggest fundraiser for the association. This disease is a group of blood disorders typically inherited from a person's parents. People with this disorder have atypical hemoglobin molecules called hemoglobin S, which can distort red blood cells into a sickle, or crescent, shape.

This year Perfect Dental Jamaica Plain, Roslindale and Hyde Park attended this event. There were fun activities for the kids, free health screenings, free food and performances.
