Stepping Out to Cure Scleroderma Walks:

Saturday, April 7, 2018:  San Antonio's 5th Annual 5K Walk/Run

  • For details and registration info for this event, please visit San Antonio's WALK EVENT PAGEon Facebook, or check back.  The walk will take place between 9:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m and registration for this event will be opening soon.  

TBA:  A new date for Houston's Stepping Out to Cure Scleroderma Walk at Bear Creek Park in Houston (originally scheduled for October of 2017) will be announced in the near future.

  • Our hearts go out to all those on the Texas coast that have been affected by Hurricane Harvey!  Due to the massive flooding in the Houston area, we are sad to say that our walk has been postponed to an unknown future date.  
    The Texas Chapter will be sure to keep you all updated as soon as we are able to secure a new date for this event.  Please contact us if you have any questions regarding this, or any of our other events.

Chapter Support Group Meetings:

Greetings Friends,

A lot of new changes are coming to Texas in 2018. As you will see from our Support Group page, we have added yet another group to our Texas family and welcome our new Brazos Valley Support Group.  As we continue moving forward, we will be growing our numbers to offer even more groups in places that currently do not offer the support needed by so many. 

If you have not yet seen one, please take a moment to download and share one of our support group brouchures from the links below. It is our hope that we may always find ways to reach new audiences. We are forever grateful for your continued support and participation. As always, we look forward to the growth to come!
