RideAtaxia Dallas for FA Cure
Our Son Vishu has Friedreich’s ataxia (FA), this is a debilitating, life-shortening, degenerative neuro-muscular disorder. Vishu’s life depends on advances in Medical research and your contributions to FARA.
On April 6th, I'm riding to cure Friedreich’s ataxia (FA), a debilitating, life shortening neuromuscular disease. I’ll ride with local FA families, friends and cycling enthusiasts to redefine what is possible in FA research.
FA Patients can have loss of vision, hearing, speech, and all motor functions. FARA is a national, public, 501(c)(3), non-profit, tax-exempt organization dedicated to the pursuit of scientific research leading to treatments and a cure for Friedreich’s ataxia. Event proceeds will be donated to FARA for medical research. More info on http://www.curefa.org
rideATAXIA was founded by Kyle Bryant, a young man with FA. Kyle redefined what was possible in his life when he took up recumbent cycling. He says after training for and completing his first century ride, "I can't even walk down the street, but I rode 100 miles in a day. After that the sky was the limit." Since 2007, rideATAXIA has raised over $7 million to fund FA research progress.
Join me in supporting the urgent pace of that research. Donate. Together we will cure FA!
