24th Annual SCTPN Walk for Sickle Cell Disease Education
Sickle Cell/Thalassemia Patients Network (SCTPN) began in 1989 at Brooklyn Jewish Hospital (now known as Interfaith Medical Center) located in Brooklyn, NY, as an adult and parent support group for individuals with an inherited blood disorder.
SCTPN celebrates 23 years of walking to raise awareness and funds for Sickle Cell Disease (SCD).
This is the second year that the walk will be held virtually on Zoom, and the theme for this celebration is #EveryStepYouTake #ShinestheLightonSickleCellDisease.
