As One Foundation

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.

My reason to race was created from the passing of my identical twin brother Devaughn Darling due to physical over excursion and internal sickling which stems from having the sickle cell trait. Extra motivation comes from the recent passing of my mother Wendy Ann Darling who instilled in us the importance of giving of oneself to help others. Please join my team for the 10th Annual Darling Dash as we honor these two beautiful souls that will impact lives forever thru the As One Foundation!??????
