2018 Stepping Out to Cure Scleroderma
Greater Baltimore 5K Walk/Run

The Scleroderma Foundation Greater Washington, DC Chapter (SFGWDC) thanks everyone who participated in our 8th Annual Stepping Out to Cure Scleroderma Greater Baltimore 5K Walk/Run on May 19th at Atholton High School! It was great to see so many familiar faces and to meet individuals joining us for the first time! Together, we raised $17,000! It is our committed and dedicated walkers, runners, donors, sponsors, and volunteers who make this possible. It was a great day with great people!

Thank you to our event volunteers, including students from Atholton High School, and SFGWDC volunteers Neal Fine, Deborah Aloof, Doretha Ficklin, Quiana Keeve, Sheila Fleet, and Matt Tourbin.
