Dr. Wayne A. I. Frederick launches ‘Run to Cure Sickle Cell’ campaign

Dr. Wayne A. I. Frederick today announced the official launch of the Run to Cure Sickle Cell campaign. The campaign, which seeks to raise to awareness and funds for Howard University’s Center for Sickle Cell Disease, will culminate with the Center’s 13th annual Stomp Out Sickle Cell 5K walk in September. Dr. Frederick was diagnosed with sickle cell anemia at birth. Last year, Dr. Frederick made a pledge online to run a 5K race every month in 2019 to bring awareness to the disease.

“I am proud to officially launch the Run to Cure Sickle Cell campaign,” said Dr. Frederick. “At birth, I was diagnosed with sickle cell anemia. While living with sickle cell at times has been a painful journey, it has also served as a source of motivation for me becoming a physician. I hope that the Run to Cure Sickle Cell campaign encourages others living with the disease to pursue their dreams without restriction. Together, we can work together to find a cure.”
