Walk or Pedal for PSC Charity Bike and Walk Events

One Day Charity Bike Ride or Walk in Vermont to Benefit PSC Partners Seeking a Cure
July 29, 2017

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

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. Many patients will ultimately require a liver transplant. So join us July 29th to help those suffering from this devastating disease and enjoy an awesome bike ride or walk in the process!

 

“I rode in the Pedal for PSC event in Martha’s Vineyard in September of 2015, and had an absolutely fantastic time. I cannot imagine how the three-day event could have been executed any better! Great Freedom Adventures had clearly put a lot of time and effort into researching and organizing the event. The routes, inn, restaurants, and snacks were all expertly chosen, and the support team ensured that every rider was well taken care of. The staff was extremely knowledgeable about the area, the wildlife, and had interesting historical information to share. In all, it was a phenomenal weekend that raised almost $50,000 for a great cause. I can’t wait for the 2017 Pedal and Walk for PSC event in Vermont in July 2017!”

Katie Randall,  Associate Director,  PSC Partners Seeking a Cure
