Put a festive theme on your fundraising challenge, and organise your walk, your way, and help us take steps to improve the lives of all those affected by Scleroderma and Raynaud’s.

Join our amazing team of fundraisers who are aiming to help us reach our £19,000 target - there are 19,000 people in the UK are currently diagnosed with scleroderma, and with your help, we can reach out and support each and every one of them, and their families. 

Whether you walk in the park, in the garden, in the house or at work and chose to count steps or miles, on your own or with your household  - however it happens - we walk together united by Scleroderma and Raynaud’s. For many people in our community, walking is a challenge, click to find out more about the benefits of walking and other useful tips. 

Our Community have walked in memory, in appreciation and in support - here are just some of our walking heroes 

Last year Una Gillespie did a 40km virtual walk by completing 10km every week for 4 weeks. Her friends and family joined her virtually from across the country and the world. Una has Diffuse Scleroderma which affects her skin and internal organs including her lungs so this is an amazing achievement anyway, but on top of that she has raised over £5,850! In this video, Una tells you why you should take up challenge and continue the walking.

Sara has scleroderma, she took on the Virtual relay Walk last year with her partner.  They walked 10km in June 2020 and raised £420! 

Friends Emily and Zoe walked Hangers Way in Hampshire, inspired by Zoe’s mother and Emily’s younger sister who both have scleroderma. They raised over £2,738!

Sue and her nephew Lee walked Wainwright’s Coast to Coast path; a distance of around 200 miles.  They raised over £3,000 for SRUK, inspired by Caroline, Lee’s mum and Sue’s sister, who has scleroderma.

Catherine and her sister Karen who lives with scleroderma, completed a 10–mile hike along the river Thames. They raised £330!
