Supporting Scleroderma Research

by | Uncategorized

In support of our dear friend and colleague and all of those living with Scleroderma, Park’s Team will be taking part in the 6th annual Scleroderma Ride for Research on June 18th. Together with the Scleroderma Association of BC, friends and family, we will be walking 10kms or cycling 30kms.

blankThe ride was started by our co-worker and friend Rosanne Queen, who was diagnosed with Scleroderma in 1997. We have watched her overcome one obstacle after another with immeasurable strength and resiliency. Never complaining, Rosanne always looks for ways to help others and find a cure. Learn more about Scleroderma and read Rosanne’s personal story.

Along with her husband (and tandem cycling partner) David, Rosanne has worked very hard to raise funds to support research into finding a cure for this disease.

ALL proceeds from this year’s ride will be donated to the Scleroderma Clinic at St. Paul’s Hospital, in Vancouver BC. Previous support has allowed a ground-breaking “proof of concept” genome study of biomarkers to get off the ground. Now it is time to keep this research rolling!

You can help by raising awareness about Scleroderma and sponsoring our team.

Park’s Team: Laurie Briggs, Lorna Harris, Bryan Fitzpatrick, Emily Sutton, Erica Sutton, Vanessa Brayden, Chelsea Fitzpatrick, Gabriel Lindsay, Pam & Davinder Randhawa, Kieran Fitzpatrick

Thanks for your support!
