JOIN THE VIRTUAL WALK for Sjögren’s

On Saturday, June 27th at 10am – all across the United States, the Sjögren’s Foundation will be hosting our Walk for Sjögren’s Virtual event.

By signing up today, you can participate in this virtual event by walking anywhere you want on Walk Day!  And we encourage you to invite your family, friends and colleagues to join you. It is a great way for you to raise awareness and funds for Sjögren’s without worrying about a scheduled event location. 

 

WHY VIRTUAL WALK?

 

With our Virtual Walk, you can walk anywhere - at home, school, work, wherever you choose. Start your online fundraising team and join our fight to conquer Sjögren’s without having to attend a scheduled event.   

 

Our goal is that on June 27th – we will have thousands of walkers all around the United States – proudly wearing their Walk for Sjögren’s T-Shirts as they walk in their communities, malls, schools, parks or neighborhoods.

 

Click Here to get started by registering for the event. There are two ways to register:

 

  1. You can donate a $30 registration fee and we will automatically send you a Walk for Sjögren’s T-Shirt! You can then continue to raise funds to help fight Sjögren’s while you also earn additional prizes which will be sent post walk!

  2. You can raise your $30 registration fee by setting up a personal web-page to start collecting donations from family and friends. Once you reach $30, the Foundation will send you your Virtual Walk T-Shirt! And as you raise additional funds - the Foundation will send you all the other prizes you earn as well! 

 

The Foundation will also offer helpful tools and tips to reach your goal as you progress. You’ll get regular updates from our team to keep you inspired and to motivate you to hit smaller goals along the way.

 

Thank you for helping us raise funds and awareness as we work together to conquer Sjögren’s!

 

PS - If you aren’t able to walk on Saturday, June 27th – you can still register, raise funds, receive a t-shirt and then walk anytime in May, June or July! It is all up to your schedule!

 

 HOW TO PARTICIPATE IN THE VIRTUAL WALK

Step 1. Sign up for Walk for Sjögren’s virtual event.  Choose either a registration fee of $30 and have your t-shirt sent immediately or chose to raise the $30 and have your t-shirt sent once you reach $30. Either way, you will set up your personal webpage so that you can set a fundraising goal and begin making a difference in the effort to conquer Sjögren’s.

 

Step 2. Recruit a team of friends, neighbors, and family to participate with you.  

 

Step 3. For raising funds, we think you deserve something for your efforts. So when you individually raise your first $100, you’ll receive the official Walk for Sjögren’s Medal. Additional fundraising rewards are displayed on our site. Keep in mind – if you raise funds or donate $30 before Wednesday, June 16th, you will receive your Walk for Sjögren’s T-shirt in time for you to wear on June 27th! All other prizes will be shipped post event and you can keep fundraising until June!

 

Step 4. If you would like to announce where you will be walking and would like the Foundation to invite other local area patients to join you, contact Grayson at the Foundation at gmoran@sjogrens.org. The Foundation will then add your location to our list of Walk for Sjögren’s Virtual Walk Sites and we will email patients in the area and encourage them to meet you at that location on June 27thClick here to see what sites are already on board!

 

Step 5. Remember to share your photos on June 27th by using #WalkforSjögren’s and also tag us @Sjögren’s on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook. And remember - a little thanks goes a long way. Be sure to tag supporters and thank those who have joined you to help you reach your goal.
