Maureen Rides for Team Riley
On June 10th, I'm riding 23 miles for Team Riley. For the fifth year my brother Pat has formed Team Riley so that we can continue to ride to help find a Cure for FA. My 22 year old nephew Riley LaPierre has FA. His family and friends have seen what this horrible disease can do young people like him. Friedreich’s Ataxia (FA), a debilitating, life shortening neuromuscular disease. Help us by donating to Team Riley.
I’ll be riding with Team Riley, other local FA families, friends and cycling enthusiasts to redefine what is possible in FA research. The reasearch continues to be very promising. We need to continue to support these amazing efforts to Find a Cure.
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 $5 million to fund FA research progress.
Join me in supporting the urgent pace of that research. Donate. Together we will cure FA!
