Ryan’s Run 5K Run/Walk


August 24, 2024
We’re thrilled to invite you to the 2024 Ryan’s Run, a fundraiser dedicated to raising money for individuals living with sickle cell disease.


The Sickle Cell Association of South Louisiana’s annual Ryan’s Run/Walk 5k promotes education and awareness for those living with sickle cell disease (SCD). Sickle cell disease/anemia is a painful genetic blood disorder impacting more than 100,000 people in the United States. With 2.5 million carrying the trait, it is the most common inherited blood disorder in the country. Newborns can be tested at birth, but others can be tested through a blood test.

Why Ryan’s Run?

Sickle cell disease affects thousands of individuals, causing severe pain, fatigue, and other health complications. Funds raised from Ryan’s Run will go directly to programs that provide critical support, including healthcare services, educational resources, and community initiatives aimed at improving the quality of life for those living with this disease.


How You Can Participate:

  1. Register to Run: Sign up to run or walk in Ryan’s Run. Every step you take helps us get closer to our fundraising goal.
  2. Donate: If running isn’t your thing, you can still make a significant impact by donating. Every dollar counts!
  3. Spread the Word: Share our event with your friends, family, and social networks. The more people who know about Ryan’s Run, the more we can achieve together.
