Years of Service
Kier's Hope Fun Run & Walk is an event where participants get together and run for a Sickle Cell Care around the globe! The event has a long standing history dating back to 2014. *Always the first Saturday in June.
"Living Your Life" is an informative and empowering lifestyle talk show hosted by Kier Spates. Kier’s co-host is Corey Hebert, MD, an award-winning medical broadcast journalist, research scientist, and author.
The holidays are everybody's favorite time of the year! Getting involved is part of the season and we do our best to make sure those who are less fortunate are able to celebrate with their families.
