Welcome to Sam's page
On March 28, Sam is riding to cure Friedreich’s Ataxia (FA), a rare, progressive, life-shortening neuro-muscular disease that affects the nerves, muscles, and heart. Its symptoms include a life-threatening heart condition, loss of strength and mobility, scoliosis and fatigue. Sam is riding in honor of Grace and Stella Smith, his friends and neighbors, who live with the difficult complications of FA.
This is Sam's third year to ride 23 miles with local FA families, friends and cycling enthusiasts to raise funds for FA research. Since 2007, rideATAXIA has raised over $6 million to fund FA research progress. To watch a short video on rideAtaxia Dallas, click here:
