Please join us for the Stepping Out to Cure Scleroderma Walk in Memory of Paul G. Bergman and Jeanette Durkee!

This is a great opportunity to connect with old friends, meet new friends and walk in honor or memory of loved ones affected by scleroderma. Money raised will be for research to find the cause and cure for scleroderma, provide necessary support resources, and hold free educational forums for patients and families.

The Stepping Out to Cure Scleroderma Walk is on Saturday, June 14, at the Two Harbors Community Club. Registration is at 9:30 a.m. and the Walk begins at 10:30 a.m. The registration fee is $25.00, and walkers receive a free shirt and chances to win door prize drawings. The proceeds go to the Minnesota Chapter of the Scleroderma Foundation, which provides support, education and research to scleroderma patients and their families. 

For more information on the Walk, go to scleroderma.org
