The As One Foundation is the leading national organization providing Sickle Cell Trait education, awareness and advocacy.
The Darling Dash 5k is a memorial race to create awareness about Sickle Cell Trait as it marks the annual anniversary of Devaughn Darling death due to sickle cell trait exertion on February 26, 2001. Darling Dash proceeds fund the sickle cell trait awarness activies of the As One Foundation.
People get the "warm-and-fuzzies" when they learn that the As One Foundation got it's name from the fact that our founder's parents and doctors were not expecting twins when Devard and Devaughn Darling were born in Nassau, Bahamas. They were majorly surprised when two boys instead of one showed up as they had been hearing two hearts beating AS ONE.
We hope you'll support this worthy cause by making the As One Foundation your Reason2Race.
The As One Foundation and their amazing organization is My Reason 2 Race! Helping others become aware and educated on Sickle Cell Trait and the importance of hydration has become a passion of mine. The fact that millions of people worldwide carry sickle cell trait and many people are unaware that they are carriers was mindblowing to me. When I first heard of sickle cell trait I had little knowledge, after following and working with the As One Foundation I am now passionate about helping close the gap between the informed and uninformed. Too many young athletes have lost thieir lives due to exerional sickling and the As One Foundation is helping with preventing more untimely deaths with their Operation Hydration program and their annual Darling Dash Run for Sickle Cell Trait. Help me raise funds to assist the As One Foundation with their efforts to bring education and awarness to sickle cell trait.
