Overview

Come join us for our annual walk to Cure Scleroderma. We have music, entertainment, kids activities, face painting, raffle, silent auction, balloon release and ice cream in addition to the walk. All monies raised go to find a cure for Scleroderma.
Scleroderma is a chronic, progressive autoimmune disease like rheumatoid arthritis, lupus and multiple sclerosis, in which the body's own immune system attacks its own tissues. Scleroderma means Hard Skin. It can cause thickening and tightening of the skin as well as serious damage to a number of internal organs. Scleroderma occurs three to four times more often in woman than men. There is no cure and no medicines.
