Vancouver
Activity: 8th ANNUAL SCLERODERMA RIDE FOR RESEARCH, VANCOUVER SUNDAY JUNE 16th

 

The Scleroderma Ride for Research raised over $50,000 for research at St. Paul’s Scleroderma Research Project.  We had over 90 join us in the sunshine.  The oldest being 90 years old, the youngest 7 weeks old. It was followed by a great pot luck lunch.  We were also joined by a few of the research team.  They talked about the on going research and shared that none of our money raised is going to salaries or expenses for the primary researchers; every dollar goes to the necessities of conducting the research.   A great day, THANK YOU to all those that supported our ride.

Victoria
Activity: 2nd ANNUAL WALK IN THE PARK, VICTORIA SUNDAY JUNE 23rd

    

“The 2nd Annual 2019  Victoria Walk in the Park for Scleroderma was another wonderfully successful day of spreading awareness and raising money for research. Close to 100 people either participated in the walk or volunteered as course marshals, set up crew, silent auction coordinators, first aid attendants and behind the scenes supporters! Over $11,000 was raised for ongoing research at St. Paul’s Hospital. Thanks to all who donated, walked and cheered. You are all a part of making Scleroderma awareness a vital part of finding a cure!!

A very special thank you to Tim Horton’s, West Shore Parks and Recreation, CFAX radio, and the organizing committee of Corrine King, Rhonda Schellengberg, Mena Westhaver, Angelina Loglisci, and Sandy Clarke, and to all the families and friends that travelled from all over the Island to be with us. Look forward to even bigger and better things next year!

Valemount
Activity: 3rd Annual Walk for Scleroderma, Valemount Saturday, June 29th

 

The 2019 Valemount Participants

Way to go Valemount! We had an incredible turnout with over 60 participants and we raised over $4700. Our day started off with poor weather but we beat the cold with hot coffee provided by Tim Horton’s who kindly donated enough coffee for all.

This is what it is all about: Alex showing support for her Mom and others.

The sun came out for part of our walk and everyone had a great time. After our walk we enjoyed our wonderful potluck lunch, played games and had an amazing afternoon. We also raised additional funds from our bake sale and raffle all thanks to those who donated. I cannot believe the support that I received from my family, friends and community.
