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 continuing to have 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 important and meaningful. You can still help raise Sjögren's awareness and crucial funds to support the Foundation’s education, support and research advances.

This means on April 9th, you choose where you want to walk whether you walk at home, on your treadmill, in your neighborhood or at your favorite park. You are welcome to meet up with friends and family.
 
How do I get started?
 

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

  • You can personally donate your $50 registration fee to receive your Walk for Sjögren’s T-Shirt!
  • Or you can raise your $50 registration fee by setting up a webpage to collect donations from family and friends. If you raise $50 by March 30th, you can receive your T-shirt in time for 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 $50, you will have earned 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 (your circle of strength) to participate and make a difference right where they are – even if they aren’t in the area. They can register online, raise funds and receive a T-shirt and prizes too!

Step 5. Join Us: On Saturday, April 9th, join us at 10 am EDT for our Walk for Sjögren’s Zoom Opening Ceremony with our Ask the Doctor panel, door prizes and much more! Then after the ceremony, step off that day at 10:45 am for your virtual walk in your neighborhood or anywhere! Be sure to take and share your pictures at #walkforsjogrens or walk@sjogrens.org.


If you register, then raise funds or self-donate $50 by March 30th you will receive your Walk for Sjögren’s T-shirt before Walk Day. Your other prizes earned will be sent to you after the event!

Thank you for helping us raise funds and awareness as we work together to conquer Sjögren’s and bring hope for a brighter future.
