4th Annual National Walkathon Event

In celebration of International Thalassemia Day, the Foundation is working in cooperation with the local Running Room to hold its annual 5km Run/Walk for Thalassemia fundraiser at Ester Lorrie Park, 50 West Humber Blvd., M9W 3W6 in Toronto on Sunday, May 4, 2014. This event will be an opportunity for the thalassemia community to raise community awareness, support and funds towards research on treatments – and ultimately, a cure – for the disease.

Feel free to create your own team and bring your family and friends.  Participants can register online at www.runningroom.com or register in person the day of the walk.  Individuals are $25 and teams of 5 or more are $20 each. For further information, please call Mohamed Hasham at 416-886-2180 or Enza Salituro at 416-414-8169. Thanking you in advance for your ongoing support.

This event will be a fun opportunity for you, your family and friends to spend time together, be active and support a great cause. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Thalassemia Foundation of Canada, a non-profit organization which provides support to thalassemia patients and their families, and helps fund research on treatments – and ultimately, a cure – for the disease.
