the project

The Warrior Drive is an event to bring further awareness to Sickle Cell Disease in America and particularly in the state of Nevada. This celebration is to honor all those who fight daily with the affects of Sickle Cell Disease to celebrate the life they continue to live and the lives of those that have been lost. This event gives an opportunity for the community of Las Vegas to come out to support those affected by Sickle Cell Disease.

the steps

Advertise the event Gain interest from the community Secure venue Register guest Solicit sponsors and vendors to help educate the community on Sickle Cell and the existing resources in Nevada that may benefit people with Sickle Cell and their families.

why we're doing it

We are doing the event to engage the community so that they will show support for Sickle Cell and to be an advocate for the Sickle Cell population in Nevada as there is very little support and resources in Nevada for the Sickle Cell population.Being a mother of a child with Sickle Cell Disease ,it is important that she is able to live in a society that is compassionate and understanding of her disability and it is my job to ensure that when she grows up people all over will know exactly what Sickle Cell is .
