logo: Scleroderma FoundationThe Northern California Chapter of the Scleroderma Foundation is pleased to announce its Second Annual / 2011 Stepping Out to Cure Scleroderma Fundraiser.

This event includes a 2-Mile Walk / Fun Run, 10K Competitive Run, and fun for the entire family with silent auction, food, and music.

For families who enjoy getting outside, the 2-Mile flat distance is perfect for a morning walk. Strollers and wheelchairs are welcome.

For individuals who are training for late Spring and Summer events, the 10K distance is an excellent way to kick start the racing season. New for 2011, the course is professionally managed so the distances will be accurately measured, well marked, and timed.

The course also has a new starting point that sets the walk and run courses off in opposing directions so runners can focus on being competitive and families won’t have to dodge runners.

Lastly, don’t forget your wallet because once the finish line is crossed there will be raffle and silent auction items to browse. All proceeds go towards supporting the Scleroderma Foundation, the leading non-profit supporter of Scleroderma research and patient support in the United States.

In 2010, an impressive 600 people came out for the inaugural Stepping Out to Cure Scleroderma Fundraiser, and the Northern California chapter hopes to double that number this year.

The event is at Almaden Lake Park on Sunday, May 15, 2011. Registration will begin on race day at 8:00am, and the walk/run will start at 9:00am. You can register online before race day. Entrance fee for the 10K is $40, 2-Mile is $30 for adults and $20 for youth. Ages 4 and under are free.

When you register online be sure to check out the online raffle. Purchasing raffle tickets will give you a chance to win the “San Jose Sharks Experience” or tickets to see World Series Champs, San Francisco Giants!
