- Split the mileage between team members.

GOAL! The Canadian goal is to raise enough through WALK83.01 to fund one year of a PSC research project. That’s a C$40,000 goal. Summaries of past PSC Partners Canada funded research projects can be found on our website.
WHY 83.01? The distance of 83.01 was chosen to match the primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) ICD-10-CM disease code, which is K83.01.
WHEN? The days between July 25 - September 30, 2022.
HOW? We encourage you to create your own personalized donation page on the chimp website (It’s easy!), and ask friends and family to sponsor you for each mile completed or make a lump sum donation. $83.01 is the suggested donation, but feel free to raise more, or donate whatever amount feels comfortable to you.
