CrossFit RYS Scleroderma "WOD for a Cure"
July 7, 2018
20 years ago my mom was diagnosed with scleroderma, systemic diffuse type. It was a challenge for her doctors to arrive at the diagnosis due to the rarity of the disease. Here we are 20 years later and thanks to the success of continued research and increased awareness, my mom is still working as a hairdresser, laughing, loving and enjoying her grandbabies despite the many challenges the disease has bestowed upon her. In my eyes, she is a warrior.
Much thanks to the incredible support of CrossFit RYS, I have been given a wonderful opportunity to help raise awareness of scleroderma and support toward research for treatment and hopefully,some day, a cure. I have been a proud member of this box since Februrary 2017 and never would have imagined receiving the support that flows from this place.
CrossFitRYS is Hope Raising for the Scleroderma Foundation to help those whose lives have been affected by this disease.
We will have a workout of the day (WOD) followed by an opportunity to learn more about this disease and the impact it can have. AND it will be Community Day so we can extend our reach to others in our community!
If you are unable to attend this event or prefer contributing online donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support our fundraising efforts.
All contributions are for the Scleroderma Foundation to use to help find a cure for those whose lives have been affected by scleroderma.
Feel free to forward our event and cause to anyone who may also want to support us!
Sincere gratitude for any and all contributions, support and participation,
