The Grand Marshal for the 1 Million Steps 4 OCD Walk in Sacramento was our own Scott Granet, LICSW. Scott has been treating OCD and related disorders for 20 years. Scott was recognized by the IOCDF for his commitment to helping people living with OCD and body dysmorphic disorder (BDD). Scott has made it his personal mission to provide treatment to people living with OCD and BDD and to educate others on these disorders.
The San Francisco Bay Area contingent in the walk raised a total of $615 for the IOCDF. The Walk fundraising page will remain open until July 6th so that we can continue to raise money, and other donors can still have the opportunity to donate to our walk team via Crowdrise. You can still donate in his honor: OCD SF Bay Area or Scott Granet
