This Fall 2020- rideATAXIA Philly is moving from our neighborhood to yours with the first ever virtual rideATAXIA Global Challenge, and we want YOU to join us. While we will miss riding with everyone in person, we are excited to tackle a new challenge together. Our goal is to log enough miles as a team to circumnavigate the globe, while raising funds and awareness for FA research, and we need your help!
Registration for the rideATAXIA Global Challenge is free and will open later this month. We will officially kick off the month-long effort on International Ataxia Awareness Day- September 25, 2020. You can cycle, run, walk, wheel, stretch, do yoga, meditate, read- as long as your body, mind or spirit is active- you're in. We hope that you will find strength in rallying, as a geographically distant but still united team, to log miles, and dollars for research.
rideATAXIA benefits FARA- a nonprofit organization dedicated to research leading to treatments and a cure for Friedreich's ataxia (FA). FA is a debilitating, life shortening, degenerative neuro-muscular disorder.
rideATAXIA cycling events across the United States have raised invaluable awareness for FA and $7 million to support FA research since 2007.
Each indvidual who raises $750 or more will receive an official rideATAXIA Jersey.
