Walk or Pedal For PSC – July 29, 2017

One Day Charity Cycling or Walking Challenge in Vermont

For the three-day charity tour option, go here.

Charity walking and cycling challenge in Vermont

Join us on July 29th to bike or walk scenic routes through the beautiful countryside of central Vermont. Walk or Pedal for PSC is fully supported and includes snacks and drinks along the way. The event will raise funds and awareness for Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC), a serious disease of the bile ducts of the liver that can affect all ages from young to old. PSC destroys liver cells and ultimately, the ability of the liver to function. The disease has no cure and few effective treatments. So join us July 29th for an awesome bike ride or walk while helping those who suffer from this devastating disease. Have fun and do good too!

Event Highlights:

  • Help fight Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC), a serious disease of the bile ducts of the liver during an exciting walking or cycling challenge in Vermont.
  • Train, fundraise and get ready to complete a 100k (62 mi) or 55k (34.2 mi) bike ride or 15k (9.3 mi) walk.
  • From your base in beautiful Woodstock, VT, discover the picturesque dairy farms, cool forests, sparkling waters – and the hills – of central Vermont.
  • Walkers will enjoy stopping at viewpoints with spectacular long-range views
  • Cyclists will enjoy routes with pastoral and distant mountain views
  • Event produced by Great Freedom Adventures to benefit PSC Partners Seeking a Cure, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to funding research on PSC and supporting patients and their families. pscpartners.org
  • Reserve your spot and start raising money now. See Details, Dates and Prices page for fundraising details.
  • Join the fight to find better treatments and a cure for PSC!

Challenge Day, July 29

Join with fellow cyclists, walkers, PSCers, and their supporters on a remarkable journey, experiencing the beauty of central Vermont and testing personal fortitude. Discover stunning long-range views, pastoral dairy farms, fields of flowers, tranquil ponds, fragrant hay fields, sparkling rivers and green forests. Along the way you may spot wildlife such as deer, turkeys, hawks or fox. You will also encounter a number of hills, as one would expect in the Green Mountain State. Just remember why we are riding or walking and that will keep you going.  Enjoy delicious post ride or walk food, drink and camaraderie to reward your hard work in the fight against PSC!
