Ride to CureFA
On July 23, I'm riding to cure Friedreich’s ataxia (FA), a debilitating, life shortening neuromuscular disease. I’ll ride with local FA families, friends and cycling enthusiasts to redefine what is possible in FA research.
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!
My FA Family connection begins with my Burke family. My grandparents had three children with FA - Edward, Rita and Tommy. My grandmother was an amazing woman who did all she could to support them and care for them, along with her children.
Please help to find a cure...
