Team Sjögren’s California was founded in 2010 by Estrella Bibbey, a Sjögren’s patient and young mother. Estrella is also one of the "Fab Five" on the celebrity panel in the book! Betty and her husband, William, joined Estrella and the rest of the team for “Six Miles for Sjögren’s” as part of the Wharf to Wharf 10K Race from Santa Cruz to Capitola, CA on July 28, 2013 to help raise funds for Sjögren’s research. The team has raised over $100,000 for the Sjögren’s Syndrome Foundation in 4 years. Click here for more information about Team Sjogren's California
The funds that Betty and William helped raise for Team Sjogren's California help to support patient services to Sjogren's patients and their families, increase national awareness, as well as provide funding towards cutting-edge research with the hope of improving the lives of Sjogren's patients.
