The PBC Foundation is the only UK based organisation that specifically deals with PBC.
Anne Goudie here, your volunteer for Glasgow and surrounding areas. I am hoping to get a group of us together (the more the merrier) to fundraise for the Foundation by taking part in the Glasgow “Kiltwalk” this year. It is on Sunday 26th April 2020 and there are 3 options for the walk of 23, 15 and 6 miles. The Foundation is recommending the 6 miles as it is probably achievable for most of us. The Hunter Foundation (Tom Hunter) will donate an additional 40% of all cash raised!! Included in the entry fee are snacks/drinks along the way, a hot meal at the end and support and first aid if required.
The entry fee is:-
23 miles - £31.69
15 miles - £31.69
6 miles - £12.80
Free entry for children aged 5 and under and you can even bring your dog, please note all dogs must be kept on a lead.
If you feel this is something you could do, please let me know asap and before 28th February. This will allow me to register us as a group.
Sponsorship forms will be provided.
Please reply directly to me on:-

The PBC Foundation provides us with so much and right now it needs our support.
International PBC Day
On the second Sunday of each September, our members and volunteers host a variety of events in their local area to raise funds and awareness of PBC for us. To find out what’s going on in your area on International PBC Day, please visit our meetings section.
Virgin Money London Marathon
Each year, the Foundation has five places in the Virgin Money London Marathon to distribute to our supporters. This year's race, in which we have seven places due to two runners being unable to participate in 2019, is being held on Sunday the 26th of April 2020, so why not come along to support our runners, or sponsor them? To enquire about our waiting list for the 2021 event, please email our Grants Officer on email@example.com. Due to the limited number of places, we can only offer places to those who are able to raise over £1,000.
Annual Winter Raffle
Each November, we draw a raffle for our members, the first prize of which is £400. Tickets are usually enclosed with the May issue of “The Bear Facts” magazine - if you sell out, please contact us, as there may be more available.
There are plenty of other events throughout the year that you can get involved with. For example, you could:
Enter half marathon “The Great North Run”
Cycle in “Pedal for Scotland”
Participate in obstacle course “Tough Mudder”
