Our Mission

We host the annual SOS Walk  (this year at the National Mall) to help raise funds to educate the general public about sickle cell disease. We work to stomp

out sickle cell disease through

education, research and advocacy.

Support Us

Our 2014 SOS Walk needs your support. Here are some of the ways you can support the SOS Walk. 

I never realized what a need there was for people with sickle cell disease until I got involved with SOS Walk. There are millions of people in America. Living comfortably, it’s easy to forget that other people out there don’t have it as easy as you do. Volunteering with SOS Walk opened my eyes and heart to a whole small world of people impacted by sickle cell disease. I'm glad that I can help!”​

“I'm so thankful for the SOS Walk. I've walked in support of their efforts to Stomp Out Sickle Cell Disease every year since they started. I also receive medical treatment and support services through Howard University Hospital and the Howard University Center for Sickle Cell Disease. I also have received counseling through Faces of Our Children,.

It helps me get through the tough times knowing that someone really cares!"
