      2019 CareWalk for a Cure for Thalassemia

      Join us for 2019 CareWalk to raise awareness and funding for Thalassemia research!

      It will be a fun-filled family event kicking off at Caroline Freeland Park at 7200 Arlington Road in Bethesda MD.


      Thalassemia is a rare genetic blood disorder that causes red blood cells to fail. Many, including infants, need blood transfusions every month to survive.

      All proceeds benefit the Cooley’s Anemia Foundation, a 502(c)(3) nonprofit.

      The walk is around Bethesda Row.

      Reaching our national goal of $300,000 will:

      Help fund 7 thalassemia research grants

      Help fund the 2019 CAF Patient-Family Conference

      Help students with thalassemia pursue higher education!

      We will have:
      Live music to get your vibe on from musicians from the DC Metro including Eli Lev & Emma G. Music.

      Activities for kids including face painting and balloon animals

      Supporters from local businesses

      A silent auction

      50/50 raffle

      Please come and show support for free. If you are able, please register as an official walker and receive a t-shirt and badge.
