The Repeat Offenders: Team Eleanor
Please join the Repeat Offenders on Sunday July 23, to cure Friedreich Ataxia! I'm riding the 4 mile loop at Channahon Central Park, (24856 W Eames St. Channahon, IL 60410). Please ride along with me! There are also 12, 27 and 50 mile cycling routes on scenic country roads. Choose the distance that is right for you!
Please reach out to your network to help raise funds for the patient advocacy organization called FARA thru this ride Ataxia event. Last year they raised over $1M to help fund research for a cure. They have a 4 star rating on Charity Navigator which means they are good stewards of the funds they receive. They are our lifeline of information and coordination of everything FA related. For more info visit, curefa.org.
We've met our fundraising goal early! Let's see how much more we can raise to the finish line! New goal $7000... Each individual who who raises $750 or more will receive an official rideATAXIA 2017 Jersey. Also, lunch is included in your rider registration. If you can't ride with our team, please consider donating whatever amount you can. Thank you for participating. YOU are making a difference.
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.
Together we will cure FA!
