Sponsored Peloton Fundraising for Pain Concern
From 7 – 12 May, a group of cyclists travelled in and around the north-east of England, sharing the latest understanding of pain science and management with the people who could benefit the most.
The group behind this feat is Flippin’ Pain, a public health campaign that aims to help people change the way they think about, talk about and treat persistent pain for the better.
Pain education awareness tour
In six days, the team visited eight different communities, holding their trademark ‘Pain: Do You Get It?’ public talks, delivering workshops for local healthcare professionals, and engaging passers-by with the ‘Brain Bus Experience’: their interactive science lab on wheels.
Final sum raised
The team of 25 cyclists were raising awareness of the tour by completing a week-long peloton. After battling rain and a lot of hills, the team reached their goal of over 180 miles (and more than 10,500 ft of hills!) and raised over £6000 for Pain Concern.
A huge thank you to everyone who took part or donated.
