By  | 

The Sickle Cell Foundation and the City of Chamber of Commerce, along with local businesses, joined forces to sponsor the 25th Annual 5K Run/Walk and Golf Tournament.

The main focus of the event was to raise money to help those with Sickle Cell Anemia.

Bernice Lewis, who participated in the run/walk, said, "If you know people suffering from sickle cell, you know the importance of finding a cure for it. It's important to get research money, dollars to help these people who have Sickle Cell."

The event included a one mile run, plus a 5K run/walk.
