The Kier’s Hope 5th Annual 5K Run and Fun Walk expects approximately 400 runners to participate. Steve Harvey Morning Show co-host and comedian Kier “Junior” Spates, who was diagnosed with sickle cell disease at the age of seven, founded the Kier's Hope Foundation Inc. in 2018 to inspire and educate families affected by the disease, provide education, programs, services and funding resources.

Sickle cell anemia is a common inherited blood disorder that inhibits the ability of hemoglobin in red blood cells to carry oxygen. The sickle cells stick together, blocking small blood vessels causing pain and other serious complications like infection, acute chest syndrome and stroke. The disease affects approximately 100,000 Americans, mostly African Americans or people who identify as Black.
