Volunteer [VolunteerMatch - Where Volunteering Begins.]

The National Stomp Out Sickle Cell Walk will be historic. This is the first time that so many Sickle Cell Associations, Support Groups, and Institutions have banded together to support each other through this effort. Volunteers are an imperative part of this effort. Without the volunteers, donors, in-kind sponsors, and underwriters we could not have this walk. We need help with the pre-walk preparation to include distributing fliers in the prior six weekends preceding the walk, volunteers motivating the walkers, and volunteers for after walk activities. Please join us.
