Team FARA members are running, walking, climbing, biking and swimming in locations around the world for FA research. While they are geographically dispersed, Team FARA is united with the same goal: to draw attention to FA through acts of physical endurance and to support the advancement of FA research towards treatments and cure for FA.
Team FARA is made up of people who participate in endurance events on behalf of the Friedreich's Ataxia Research Alliance (FARA). Past Team FARA members have registered as individuals and groups in local marathons, half-marathons, triathlons, Iron Man competitions, bike tours and 5k runs. With the FARA name in their fundraising materials and on their race jerseys, Team FARA competitors are introducing the general public to this rare disease and the importance of supporting FA research.
