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 East Don Parkland in North York on July 16, 2017. 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 https://www.events.runningroom.com/site/?raceId=14286 . Individuals are $25, teams of 4 are $100, teams of 5 or more are $20 each.
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.
