This past June was Scleroderma Awareness Month, but because of the pandemic all of the 11 walks throughout the tri-state region were cancelled, and have become virtual walks scheduled for October 10th
According to their immediate press release, the Stepping Out to Cure Scleroderma walks are part of a month-long awareness campaign to educate, and bring families together to support those effected, and hold fundraising events to help support programs and services, for those living with Scleroderma.
The June Scleroderma Awareness Month activities didn’t happen this summer, but you can still help by participating in the Stepping Out to Cure Scleroderma virtual walk being held October 10, 2020.
The Scleroderma event will feature Moody McCarthy, Cinnamon Jones, Robbie Rozelle, various doctors, speakers, silent auctions and raffles in a fantastic virtual atmosphere via Facebook Live and YouTube.
