It was our hope to ride with you in person this Fall for rideATAXIA Dallas, but the uncertainty and risks associated with a large in-person event remain too significant to proceed. We appreciate your support of rideATAXIA and Friedreich's ataxia (FA) research, through your registration and incredible fundraising. Your generosity was impactful, especially this year, in maintaining an urgent pace for research. Thank you.  

All previously registered 2020 participants will receive their event t-shirt by mail in the coming weeks. And the fundraisers that earned jerseys will receive those by mail as well. We will also supply a coupon code for deeply discounted fee for the 2021 event to all 2020 registrants, when registration opens.

And, we invite you to participate virtually this Fall as rideATAXIA Dallas moves from UNT's neighborhood to yours with the first ever virtual rideATAXIA Global Challenge. Our goal is to log enough miles as a team to circumnavigate the globe, 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 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 $8.5 million to support FA research since 2007.
