Fundraising Events

The Upper Great Lakes chapter hosts several Stepping Out for Scleroderma Events. They are the Twin Cities Walk in Minnesota, the Detroit Stampede in Michigan and our newest walk in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The chapter’s annual walks are signature fundraising events of the National Scleroderma Foundation. These events provide an opportunity for individuals and families affected by scleroderma to take action against the disease while supporting their loved one.
