The 2016 Walk Season is here! Register online today and start fundraising!

Our online fundraising tools make it easy to set a fundraising goal, personalize your fundraising page, contact family and friends, and track your progress. Get started today and help us get one step closer to a cure!

Did you know? If every walker increased their fundraising by just $100, that would mean another $1.6 million dollars for scleroderma!
