Partnership is an important means of getting things accomplished. That is why MCSCI is proud and happy to be partnering with the Indy Eleven this year. This partnership includes co-branding of literature, social media promotions and free match tickets for distribution to MCSCI clients and their families. The icing on the cake was the MCSCI Game Night on July 25, 2015. That night, the Indy Eleven played to a 1-1 tie with the New York Cosmos.
The Indy Eleven provided MCSCI with a free booth in the Honda Fan Zone where we distributed literature and talked to people about Sickle Cell Disease and Trait. Our 2015 Child Ambassador, Tairyn Cavilear, gave the first kick at midfield just before the match started. At halftime, MCSCI President, Gary A. Gibson, was given the microphone to talk about Sickle Cell and what MCSCI does to help those who live with it. The official attendance for the match was 10,206. It was a tremendous opportunity to make people aware of Sickle Cell and we are very grateful for the Indy Eleven for allowing that to happen. It would take many months to reach that number of people at health fairs! In our view, that is what partnership is all about.
Thanks, Indy Eleven!
