rideATAXIA Chicago - July 23, 2017

Team Emily


My name is Emily Young. I'm 21 years old. Nine years ago I was diagnosed with Friedreich's Ataxia (FA a degenerative neuromuscular disease. While my symptoms of FA are common; fatigue, loss of muscle, and heart disease, there is nothing common about my fightl to beat this disease.

On July 23, I'm riding to cure FA. I’ll ride with local FA families, friends and cycling enthusiasts to redefine what is possible in FA research.  The progress to cure FA can only move forward through continued research.  Come out on July 23rd, join me in raising awareness, promoting research, riding an amazing route, and enjoying great food.

Together we WILL cure FA!
