Burden's Buddies

As you may know, my family has participated in the Scleroderma Walk for the last 9 years. This year we are, once again, participating in the 15th annual "Stepping Out to Cure Scleroderma" Walk through Highland Park in support of my aunt, Eileen Burden. While we truly enjoy this beautiful walk with "Burdens Buddies", we also have great satisfaction knowing that we are walking to help find a cure for a disease that not only affects our family but an estimated 300,000 people in the United States who have scleroderma as well!

We have accepted the challenge to raise $600.00 as part of our participation in the walk. We are eager to get started with our fundraising and we need your support! You can support us in the following ways:

  • You can join our team "Burden's Buddies" for this enjoyable walk Sunday, June 25, 9:00 AM (Registration begins at 7:30 AM) at Highland Park Train Station or in advance at http://www.scleroderma.org/goto/BurdensBuddies2017 


  • If you are unable to attend the walk, you can make a donation online at http://www.scleroderma.org/goto/BurdensBuddies2017 . Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to make a contribution to my fundraising efforts. If you are not comfortable with internet transactions you can print the amail-in form below and mail your check directly to the Scleroderma Foundation. Please be sure to mention that you are supporting Burden's Buddies. Feel free to contact me if you need any help! 

While you're here, you might want to spend some time on the site to find out more information on why this event is so important, and the organizations and people that will be helped by the money we all raise.

Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to be involved with our fundraising efforts!
