Our 12th Annual Stepping Out to Cure Scleroderma benefit walk was a success!

2017 Stepping Out to Cure Scleroderma


We are so grateful for everyone who attended and supported our 12th Annual Stepping Out to Cure Scleroderma benefit walk!  100% of your donations will be donated directly to scleroderma research.  Thank you for helping us find better treatments or a cure for scleroderma!

This year's event was attended by 220+ people, and together we raised approx. $31,000 for research!


Pictures from the walk can be found here!



Shop at Fred Meyer and Earn Donations for the Oregon Chapter!

Here's how the Fred Meyer Rewards Program benefits the Oregon Chapter:

  • Sign up for the Community Rewards program by linking your Fred Meyer Rewards Card to the Scleroderma Foundation Oregon Chapter at www.fredmeyer.com/communityrewards. It's easy!
