The PBC Foundation is the only UK based organisation that specifically deals with PBC.
PBC - Cycle around the World
On the 5th of January 2022, Jasmine Jewell launches her Cycle around the World challenge in aid of the PBC Foundation.
What are we doing?
The aim is for US and YOU, together to cycle 25,000 miles between the 5th Jan 2022 and 2023. This is the circumference of the world and a bit more!
Why are we doing it?
The 5th of Jan marks 10 years since losing Mum, we are determined to prevent anyone suffering alone as mum did and not receiving the support they need and deserve and I want to spread the word about PBC and raise vital funds for the PBC Foundation.
Who can get involved?
Anyone! Whether you cycle regularly, fancy a new challenge or even do spin class once a week, all those miles count.
If you don't fancy cycling but still want to help, you can. Spread the word to help us get our message out there and if you can afford to please donate!
How to get involved:
We shall soon have a website ready in which you can submit your miles, however in the meantime, get on your bike, be it out and about, in front of the telly or at the gym, clock your miles and send them in to help us reach 25,000 miles!
Getting out with family and friends for a walk will not only help to improve your own health and wellbeing, it could help all PBC sufferers and ensure they have access to all our vital services.
Funds raised in previous years has really helped us to launch are online services and maintain our vital 24/7 helpline.
