Shannon Hennessy: Welcome to My Personal Page
On June 10th, 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. I'm riding to help raise funds to find a cure for this disease that affects both my siblings. I hope that someday Zack and Kelly can walk again!
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. Please help keep the momentum going!
Join me in supporting the urgent pace of that research. The researchers are very close to making a breakthrough. Please Donate. Together we will cure FA!
