SPIN at the Walk for Scleroderma

by Marie-Eve Carrier | Jun 15, 2017

SPIN recently had the pleasure of attending  the first annual Walk for Scleroderma held on June 4th, at Parc du Domaine Vert in Mirabel.

This event, organized by Sclérodermie Quebec, marked the beginning of Scleroderma Awareness Month in Canada and the United States. The goal of this walk was to raise public awareness, help fund research, and show support people living with scleroderma. The event greatly exceeded its initial fundraising goal of $10,000 by raising more than twice that amount, reaching a grand total of $ 21,200!

A huge thank you to Scérodermie Québec and its partners for this great event.

See you next year!
