HUGHESTOWN -- The Cooley's Anemia Foundation held its annual care walk to fight thalassemia anemia on Sunday.

The walk started at the Hughestown Hose Company. Many people born with the disease require lifelong blood transfusions and daily drug treatments.

All the money raised at the event goes toward finding a cure for thalassemia anemia.
