William Land Park
Check-in: Registration opens at 7:30.
Start: 9:00 a.m & 9:30 a.m.
Walk Length: 10 & 5 K, 2 mile walk
The Northern California Chapter of the Scleroderma Foundation hosts this annual event to raise money for chapter support services, education and funds national research and to promote awareness Scleroderma. Your donations and attendance of the run/walk will help fund chapter operations, support groups, member & physician outreach, education & research.
Scleroderma is a chronic, often progressive, autoimmune disease in which the immune system attacks its own body. In some cases, it causes serious damage to internal organs including the lungs, heart, kidneys, esophagus and gastrointestinal tract.. The disease affects about 300,000 people across the U.S. Our chapter is volunteer run. Most of our board members and many of our volunteers suffer from scleroderma either directly or through a loved one. This horrible auto-immune disease has no cure.
Our fundraising events give those diagnosed with scleroderma an opportunity to connect with others who have been diagnosed with scleroderma, as well as give hope that the funds raised may someday lead to a cure.
You can also register online for the walk or make a donation at the same website http://www.scleroderma.org/norcal
