Thank you for visiting our fundraising page! The two of us have decided to participate in the Nautica South Beach Classic Triathlon in order to raise money for this very personal cause. Julie was diagnosed with scleroderma at the age of 16 and has been dealing with this disease on a daily basis ever since. Scleroderma has affected our lives, as well as the lives of so many others. We decided to take an active role in trying to find a cure. Being that scleroderma is still such an obscure disease, our goal is to raise awareness as well as help fund research. Please join us in our efforts by clicking the SUPPORT THIS EVENT button below and making a donation. Your support is vital. Together we hope to make a difference.

What is scleroderma?
Scleroderma is much more than ‘hard skin,’ as its name implies. Chronic, complex and debilitating, it can affect the internal organs with life-threatening consequences. Depending on the subtype of illness, scleroderma can damage the joints, muscles, lungs, kidneys, vasculature and gastrointestinal tract with grave results. Scleroderma is an auto-immune disease. It is not contagious and not directly hereditary. Scientists don’t yet know what causes it and until a cure is found, medical research is the key to developing improved treatments that will help patients live longer, fuller lives.

What is the SRF?
The Scleroderma Research Foundation is the nation’s leading nonprofit investor in medical research aimed at finding improved therapies and a cure for people living with scleroderma. A growing number of supporters have allowed the Foundation to invest millions of dollars in the most promising medical research. One hundred percent of the Foundation’s revenue comes from generous individuals who recognize that they can make a difference.
