A: Let’s Walk for Scleroderma is an activity organized to raise funds to enable us to fullfill our mission: contributing to research and support for patients.

This fundraiser for Scleroderma Quebec will take place in June along with other organized walks across Canada. Together, we can help the 22 000 Canadians who live with scleroderma. The funds that you and your team raise are invested in research to find a cure and in providing services to support people with scleroderma.
