FARAFARA Cure FA

5th Annual Slim's Journey

2016SlimsJourneySlim's Journey ~ A Journey of Hope

September 24, 2016 marked the 5th annual Slim's Journey: FARA 5K Run/2.5K Walk. This year was a significant year for us because we have been able to host this event with continued interest and support from our community, we have reached a $100,000 fund raising milestone, and 2016 was our highest fundraising year to date with over $26,000 raised. 

Although through this event we raise money for FARA and awareness of Friedreich's Ataxia, our event is about hope. Our hope comes from the knowledge that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior and through His sacrifice, we can all have eternal life. We all endure suffering of some kind but knowing we all have the option to press into our Heavenly Father is what we want to share with our participants. Each year, we include a scripture of hope on our event shirt. This year, our scripture was Romans 5:3-4 ~ "Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope." Sharing this message is of utmost importance to our family and serves as a reminder that this world is just temporary. Something much better waits for us.

The FARA Ambassador Program

The FARA Ambassador Program

The FARA Ambassadors are a united team of patient volunteers living with FA who are committed to supporting FARA in the search for a treatment and cure.
 
Together we seek to know more about FA, and FARA so we can be prepared to represent the community when the opportunity arises; speaking at events, to volunteers, potential donors, scientific groups, pharma partners, media interviews and other awareness and fundraising opportunities. We believe support is key to continued success toward our ultimate goal of treatment and a cure. Participants in the FARA Ambassador Program are passionate about building and upholding relationships within the FA community.
 
The FARA Ambassadors are positive, supportive, peer representatives for the FA community, actively raising awareness and funds for FARA. To learn more about the FARA Ambassador Program or to have a FARA Ambassador speak at your event, please contact: info@cureFA.org.
