Walk, run, bike, practice yoga, spin, canoe, hike. If you’re active and moving your body, you’re doing it right!
Can’t leave the house?
Track your steps and do some laps indoors!
When you donate to Scleroderma Atlantic, you’re supporting the physical health, mental wellbeing, and financial stability of those living with scleroderma. You’re also supporting vital research towards a cure.
With support from our generous partners we have been able to make great strides in advancing the quality of life for those living with scleroderma and funding research towards a cure.
Why Support Scleroderma Public Awareness?
Every June campaigns are held around the world to increase public awareness and to raise funds for support programs. These campaigns also fund research towards a cure for this difficult disease.
World Scleroderma Awareness day is campaigned in Europe, Australia, Canada, Brazil, India and many more countries.
Did you know that 40,000 people in Canada live with scleroderma?
Scleroderma is a rare and chronic autoimmune disease that is life altering and life threatening. There is no cure for scleroderma. People living with this disease need your support.
Help Scleroderma Atlantic reach our goal.
This year Scleroderma Atlantic aims to raise $30,000 to support people living with scleroderma in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland and Labrador. With your help, we can make our goal a reality!
Your Participation Can Change a Life
We know that many of us are facing lockdowns, restrictions, and strange times. Despite this, we are banding together to show our support for this very important cause. We encourage all participants to get active in the best way that suits you and your location.
Share YOUR Story To Raise Awareness
Your story is important. It raises awareness for scleroderma and helps those with the disease know that they are not alone. Record a video about your experience with scleroderma and share it on your social media and with us at Scleroderma Atlantic. We will post the videos on our website and social media channels too!
