Volunteers Wanted!

2016 Stepping Out volunteers

Our 2018 Walk committee is in need of volunteers!  

We are working on the plans for our 2018 benefit walk, and as always we will be needing some wonderful volunteers to help us put this event together!

Volunteers will be needed for the following areas:

  • Advertising
  • Food
  • Fundraising
  • Kids' Activities
  • Registration
  • Setup

If you would like to volunteer to help in one of these areas (or with something else not listed above!) or if you have ideas or questions, please contact walk coordinator Christina Fidalgo at cfidalgo@scleroderma.org!

Board of Directors

The Oregon Chapter is looking to add a few new people to our board of directors to help us grow!  Anyone at all is welcome to apply, so please ask your friends and family, and don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions!

  • Applicants must be over 20 years of age
  • Actually having scleroderma is not a requirement!
  • We meet approx. 6 times per year.
  • Computer/email skills are a plus
  • Any motivated, responsible people looking for a volunteer opportunity are encouraged to apply!

Email ORchapter@scleroderma.org for more details!

Support Group Leaders 

Would you like a scleroderma support group in your area?  Would you consider leading it?

We want to start support groups all over Oregon, so we need support group leaders!  It's easier than you think, and we are here to help!  We can help you find a venue, help spread the word to local scleroderma patients, provide topics, and provide general guidance and support.

If you are interested in helping out in any of the above positions or have any questions at all, please contact us at ORchapter@scleroderma.org for additional details!
