No Walk-a-thon in your Area? You Can Still Participate!

We know that you want to participate in raising Sjögren’s awareness in your community and funds for Sjögren’s research and educational programs but without an organized Walk in your area, you could not contribute — NOW YOU CAN! WALK AROUND THE BLOCK FOR SJÖGREN’S SYNDROME!

Gather a couple of friends, family, co-workers together and WALK AROUND THE BLOCK FOR SJÖGREN’S SYNDROME.

You do not need to have a large group to participate. Collect donations as you would for the walk-a-thons and raise much needed awareness and funds for Sjögren’s.
