Join us on Saturday, October 24th, at 10 a.m. via Zoom for the New York State Virtual Walk Opening Ceremony and then celebrate our strength as you walk through your neighborhood or other safe favorite area. 

 If you raise funds or donate $40 by Wednesday, October 11th, you will receive your Walk for Sjögren’s T-shirt in time for you to wear on October 24th!


WHY VIRTUAL WALK?

 The Sjögren's Foundation is committed to the health and safety of our patients, their families and our volunteers. Therefore, we are having a virtual event due to COVID-19.

Even in the face of the coronavirus, the fight to conquer Sjögren's continues and the importance of coming together as a virtual community is even more meaningful. You can still help raise Sjögren's awareness and crucial funds to support the Foundation.

This means on October 24th, you can walk at home, on your treadmill, or in your neighborhood.


HOW DO I GET STARTED?

Step 1. Register: You can choose one of two registration options:

  • You can personally donate your $40 registration fee and we will automatically send you a Walk for Sjögren’s T-Shirt!
  • Or you can raise your $40 registration fee by setting up a webpage to collect donations from family and friends. If you raise $40 by October 11th, you can receive your T-shirt in advance of walk day.

Step 2. Personalize: Add your story and why you walk to your online fundraising page created when you registered in Step 1.

Step 3. Raise Funds: Ask family and friends to donate. Once you reach $40, the Foundation will send you your Walk T-Shirt! Additional prizes earned from your fundraising will be sent to you after the walk.

Step 4. Rally Others: Encourage your family and friends to participate and make a difference right where they are – even if they aren’t in New York. They can register online, raise funds and receive a T-shirt and prizes too!

Step 5. Join Us: On Saturday, October 24th, join us at 10 a.m. for our Walk for Sjögren’s Zoom Kickoff with our ask the doctor panel, door prizes and much more! Then step off that day at 10:45 a.m. for your virtual walk in your neighborhood! Be sure to take and share your pictures at #walkforsjogrens or walk@sjogrens.org.
