2017 ASH Foundation Run/Walk

Start your day in a fun, healthy, and philanthropic way by participating in the fifth annual ASH Foundation Run/Walk before attending the Sunday sessions. Participants may run or walk through the designated event course in Atlanta, choosing either a 3K or 5K route.

Friends and family can support your efforts by donating to the ASH Foundation in honor of you or your team! Proceeds from all individual and group registration fees as well as additional individual donations will benefit the ASH Sickle Cell Disease Initiative Fund. ASH and the ASH Foundation may opt to designate a portion or all of corporate sponsorship revenues associated with the Run/Walk to help support the cost of administering the event.

Teams will get credit for any donations made by their members' friends and family. ASH will recognize the teams that generate the largest amount of donations (collectively) on the ASH website.

Anyone can donate to the cause - even other meeting attendees who do not wish to participate in the Run/Walk itself.

All registration and charitable donation proceeds from the 2017 ASH Foundation Run/Walk will support the Sickle Cell Disease Initiative, a current top priority for ASH.
