This year PushON is supporting FOP Friends as our Charity of the Year. We aim to help raise awareness of this extremely rare condition and help fund research into finding a cure.
PushON Supporting FOP Friends
FOP or Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva is a genetic condition that causes bone to form in muscles, tendons, ligaments and other connective tissues. Worldwide, this affects one in two million people and there are 40 known cases in the UK.
What are we doing?
May 2015 – Aprons on and let the baking commence! The PushON office has a cake sale.
June 2015 – Just because the sun isn’t shining, it doesn’t mean we can’t have a BBQ. Tongs at the ready!
July 2015 – Team PushON PelotON are cycling from Manchester United football ground at Old Trafford to the South Promenade at Blackpool! Click here to donate. Guess the baby picture is also taking place.
September 2015 – Starting in Newcastle upon Tyne our MD Simon will be getting his run on for 13.1 miles!
Date TBC – Unknown to them, some of the men in the office will be saying bye to their beards in a charity shave off. Those without beards be warned, we’ll be coming for your leg hair!
Date TBC – Raffle.
