Walk for SRUK
You choose the distance, you choose the route.
This Summer, either walk 19 miles for the 19,000 people living with Scleroderma in the UK or choose your own distance.
Every step you take will help raise vital funds and awareness for those living with Scleroderma and Raynaud's.
We know that on some days, every step can be a challenge. So whether it's 9 or 19 miles, walk for SRUK today.
This Summer, we're asking you to walk for the 19,000 people in the UK who are living with Scleroderma.
SRUK work to improve the lives of everyone affected by Scleroderma and Raynaud's. We do this by investing in research, improving awareness and understanding of the conditions and providing information and support to all those affected. With your help, we can reach and help more people.
The £50 you raise could fund a PHD student for a day on one of life-changing our research projects.
You can find our SRUK Walk Guide below if you need some inspiration!
