Celebrating 41 years of fundraising with Stampede
2020 marks 41 years of Stampede Scleroderma: a 5k run and one-mile walking fundraiser. On June 7, we'll be putting on our hideous socks and returning to the Detroit Zoo for more family-friendly fun.

This year, we're encouraging teams to find the most fun/funky/hideous socks they can and wear them proudly as we race toward a cure. We also need your help to reach our $150,000 fundraising finish line: the highest ever!

It will take every team leader and team member reaching out to friends, family members and co-workers for even a $5 donation. Can you imagine how much could be raised if every team member sets a goal to raise $20, $50 or $100 more than last year? As always, every dollar raised will support the Scleroderma Foundation Michigan Chapter's three-fold mission of support, education and research.

Helpful Event Tips

  • Each Stampeder must pay the registration fee to receive their ticket to enter the Detroit Zoo. Pick yours up at registration on event morning
  • There is no packet pick-up prior to event morning
  • T-shirts and medals for 5k runners must be picked up the day of the event and cannot be mailed before or after the event
  • Donating is different than registering. Make sure to register for an event if you would like to walk or run
  • Donations made online cannot be changed into registrations
  • Participants entering the zoo must be inside the gates by 10:25 a.m. to avoid additional fees
  • Check-in and registration areas will close at 8:30 a.m. Make sure to arrive early to pick up your T-shirt and zoo ticket and enjoy the fun activities
  • Stampeders ages three and older must register for the event and pay registration fees, even if the guest is planning on being in a stroller. The zoo charges SFMC for those who are over the age of 2 years
