Stampede Scleroderma 2021


Thank you for visiting the Stampeders Team Fundraising page to support the Scleroderma Foundation Michigan Chapter's "Stampede Scleroderma “event. For 42 years the Michigan Chapter has held this fundraising effort in the community. 

Whether we host the event in-person on June 6th at the Detroit Zoo or virtually to keep persons living with scleroderma safe, the mission and goal of the event remains the same. We need to raise $150,000! 

There are 11,000 persons in the state of Michigan counting on this event to raise funds to support the three-fold mission of the Scleroderma Foundation. Scleroderma has an 85% five-year survival rate, but we need a CURE, we also need YOU! 

Becoming a virtual supporter or donor is the first step to making a difference. You do not have to have a connection to scleroderma to want to join our team. You just need to have a caring heart. Steve and I have no direct connection to scleroderma, yet we are passionate about the chapter's three-fold mission of support, education, and research. The scleroderma community has become our second family and means the world to us. Our children are actively involved with the chapter and volunteer and support the mission of SFMC by being sponsors to the event, helping the day of the event and by being part of our team.

I have watched far too many incredible friends, co-workers and board members lose their battles to scleroderma. Every week I receive calls about another family who is grieving a tragic loss. Supporting this event will help us get closer to finding the cure and to supporting the needs of our chapter.

Stampede Scleroderma raises funds so the Michigan Chapter can create the needed patient resources. The funds support our web-based educational experiences that are now reaching across international waters. 

Patients come first at the Michigan Chapter and we are always striving to increase services and programs to meet the ever growing needs we are seeing. We are a chapter that believes in patient-centered services and programs.

Steve and I and our family are hoping you will join our team in-person or virtually, or volunteer on June 6th. 

If you are unable to be with us making a financial contribution is easy to do on this website and every dollar will make a significant difference and is appreciated. 

Donating through this site is simple, fast, and totally secure. To donate, click the "Support My Team" button that appears under my photo. Then, just follow the instructions.

If you would like to join our team at the event, and walk and help raise funds, please click on “Join My Team” and follow the directions.

Please help today! Steve and I sincerely appreciate your support, and we ask you to please share this with anyone who you think might want to help.

Help our team bring more awareness to scleroderma so we can find a cure!

Fondly and with appreciation,

Laura Dyas

Executive Director
