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!
