Event Details

Take an Important Step for Scleroderma

This year, make a positive impact on the lives of family, friends, coworkers and everyone who lives with scleroderma. Participate in one of the Scleroderma Foundation’s "Stepping Out to Cure Scleroderma" walk/run events.

Our chapters and support groups held 60 walks in 2015 with over 13,000 participants, raising more than $1.3 million to help people living with scleroderma and spread awareness. These events help raise thousands of dollars to provide essential support and educational programs, and other resources for people living with scleroderma and their family and friends.

When you walk, you support the Scleroderma Foundation and the hundreds of thousands of adults and children who cope with this disease every day.
