IMG_4409.JPG  Thank you for making the 2020 virtual walks a success!



To protect the health of scleroderma patients and their families, this year the Scleroderma Foundation of Greater Chicago held its first ever virtual walks.

Although we missed seeing you all in person, we were blown away by what you all accomplished when you came together virtually to #WalkAloneTogether.

From Springfield to Dixon and Highland Indiana to Highland Park Illinois, our supporters made the 2020 walk season one to remember, helping us raise more than $120,000!

From all of us at the Scleroderma Foundation, thank you for your support and for joining us as we continue the fight for a cure!
