2019 CareWalk for a Cure for Thalassemia

Sunday, May 5, 2019, 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM

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.
