You can make a difference just by walking with family and friends! Please join the Scleroderma Foundation for a fun-filled event while raising awareness about scleroderma, a little known autoimmune disease that has life-altering and potentially life-threatening consequences for those who are impacted by it. The only hope for advances in treatment and a possible cure someday is research. As a rare disease, scleroderma does not have the same opportunities to tap into the kinds of dollars available for better known and more common illnesses. The Foundation's walks set out to provide support for patients and their families, as well as crucial fundraising to change the future of this disease. The first walk will be held in Ventnor, NJ on May 6, 2017 starting at the Ventnor Library, 6500 Atlantic Avenue. Registration can be done online in advance or on-site at 9:30 am; the walk along the boardwalk begins at 10:30. A silent auction, light refreshments, individual and team awards, and prizes for monies raised will be included. For more information or to register, visit www.scleroderma.org/ventnorwalk or call the Scleroderma Foundation of the Delaware Valley at 856-779-7225 or toll free at 866-675-5545.
