Rocky Mountain Stepping Out to Cure Scleroderma Adventure

Team Shephard

Thank you for visiting my Team Fundraising page to support the "Rocky Mountain Stepping Out to Cure Scleroderma Adventure"!

Conquer the Peaks Challenge

Want to summit a few of Colorado’s 14ers “virtually”? Here’s how!

Between now and June 29th join my team to conquer one or more of Colorado’s 14ers in person or virtually. Pick the 14er you would like to climb and let me know which one(s) you select (email me at ). Our team goal is to conquer all 58 Colorado’s 14er’s!

Keep track of the number of steps you take while walking/running (log your steps on your phone or favorite app). To make it feel even more like climbing a 14er, you can walk/run up the stairs. It can be done in one day or over several days. Send me a screen print of your steps log when you have conquered the 14er and if you would like to conquer another one.  See below for suggested Apps to log steps and a 14ers chart with the number of steps.

Be sure to take a photo or a quick video of you when you are “climbing” the 14er (it’s always good to have a buddy when trying to summit a 14er!). Send photos and videos to and post on social media with the hashtag #scleroadventure. Challenge others to join you! Help us raise awareness and funds to fight scleroderma, an autoimmune disease that has affected me for over 24 years.

Help me reach my fundraising goal of $2500 by registering for my team and joining my virtual challenge. Just click on “Join My Team” to get started.

Let’s conquer the 14ers to conquer and cure scleroderma!

Or, if you are able, please consider supporting me and the scleroderma community with a donation to my team. The money raised will be used to fund research, to support patients, raise awareness and ultimately find a cure for the disease. Whatever you can give will help – it all adds up. To donate, click on “Support Team Shephard”.

Thank you so much for your support!!
