Information and inspiration for scleroderma patients and caregivers. Serving people in Illinois, Wisconsin and Indiana.
Many brave souls made their way to UFC Gym on May 21, 2016 for an action-packed morning of boxing at the 2nd annual Knock Out Scleroderma! The McCaffrey family started this fitness event last year in honor of loving mother and wife, Jan, who battled scleroderma for many years.
UFC Gym hosted an hour boxing lesson for participants before they made their way to The Scout Waterhouse + Kitchen for appetizers, beer, and prizes. This fundraiser was tons of fun and raised approximately $3,000 for the Scleroderma Foundation! Way to go!
We are always impressed with the ideas that our supporters come up with for fundraising and the determination they have to make a difference. A huge thank you to the McCaffrey family for their ongoing support. These types of community fundraisers truly are the lifeblood of our organization and provide hope to scleroderma patients everywhere.
If you’d like to start your own fundraising event, you can use the “Hoperaiser” fundraising tools on our website, or reach out to us at 312-660-1131 for more information.
Great job everyone! See you again next year!
