Event Description

IMG_3400In January of 2013, twin brothers and NFL cornerbacks, Jason & Devin McCourty partnered with Embrace Kids Foundation and launched a campaign against sickle cell disease. The campaign, entitled “Tackle Sickle Cell” aims to educate the public, increase blood donors and raise money & awareness for the fight against sickle cell disease.

On Sunday, June 9, 2013, The McCourty Twins will be hosting a 5K Run/Walk in Liberty State Park in Jersey City, NJ. This 5K Run/Walk is the major fundraising component of the Tackle Sickle Cell Campaign. Liberty State Park is a beautiful setting that offers incredible views of the Statue of Liberty & Lower Manhattan. The Run/Walk is for all ages and will be followed by a celebration including music, food, and fun at the park. Jason & Devin McCourty will be joined on this day by fellow members of the NFL & Rutgers football community.
