Hello Friends and Family,
Thank you for visiting our fundraising page. We are soliciting your participation in walking for our team.
We joined the fight against Sickle Cell Anemia disease by signing up for the McCourty Twins Tackle Sickle Cell 5K which is being held as part of the “Heel to Heal” Walk/Cycle event to raise funds for the Embrace Kids Foundation.
On Sunday, May 19th, the Jimmy Express team will walk in this awesome joint event which is being held at the Liberty State Park in Jersey City, New Jersey at 1:00 p.m.
The team is named for our son, Jimmy, who is a HUGE fan of Nintendo Switch, Playstation, Mario, Golfing, Swimming and Volunteering.
Jimmy has Sickle Cell Anemia which is a hereditary blood disorder that causes red blood cells to form into a curved sickle shape. Sickle Cell Anemia disease is the most common genetic disorder in the United States. These sickle-shaped cells can clog blood vessels and deprive the body's tissues and organs of oxygen. There is currently no cure for Sickle Cell Anemia, but doctors can provide treatments that help prevent complications from the disease which requires the constant need for treatment.
I hope you will join us and the rest of the team by walking.
You can also support us by making a pledge of any amount you desire. Any contribution will help! Remember all donations are 100% tax-deductible. Together we can Tackle Sickle Cell!

Last year our team was successful in obtaining over $13,000 in contributions.
Love always and thank you for your continued support.
Jimmy, James and Sonya Williams
