Welcome to Ruth's Page
On February 24th, 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.
My sister Beth has FA. Her fight to live and embrace life fully inspires me and makes me so proud to be her sister. I'm coming to Southern California to join with my sisters and our families, by blood and of the heart, to raise awareness and funding for FA.
rideATAXIA[+] seeks to empower local communities to organize neighborhood bike rides and raise funds for FARA's mission to treat and cure FA through research. In the spirit of rideATAXIA, these grassroots rides include participants of all abilities and each ride is followed by a gathering to celebrate camaraderie. Local community events like rideATAXIA[+] are a significant part of what funds research and drive us towards the ultimate finish-treatments and a cure for FA.
Join me in supporting the urgent pace of that research. Donate. Together we will cure FA!
