Friedreich’s Ataxia Research Alliance (FARA) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to funding research to cure Friedreich’s Ataxia (FA). FA is a debilitating multi-system disease and the most common type of inherited ataxia. 1 in 100 people are carriers of the FA gene. What begins as difficulty with balance and coordination progresses over a short period of time to a life-altering loss of mobility, energy, speech and hearing, robbing children and young adults of the ability to live active lives. FA also presents serious risk of diabetes and life-shortening cardiac disease.
Our event will include 4, 8, 25, and 50-mile route options. In addition, we will have fully stocked rest stops, strong SAG support, and delicious post-ride food prepared by Outback Steakhouse.
