8th Annual Pull for a Cure

8ann Pull4aCure"The 8th Annual Pull for a Cure was held on Saturday, February 10th. If you’ve never been or heard of this event, it is one you don’t want to miss! Held at Tampa Bay Sporting Clays, the day started with clay shooting on an 8 station shooting course and ended with a tasty meal catered by World of Beer. The event also featured massages, raffles, live entertainment and a craft beer & food pairing class for non-shooters!

This year there was a cowboy theme! One of our newest donation raisers this year was the ‘Paul Avery Roping Competition.’ After the raffle winners were announced, they asked who wanted to donate money and see a real cowboy, Ben Barthle, rope my dad. Of course, everyone jumped up to donate and then the roping commenced. This definitely brought a lot of laughs and a lot of funds for FARA. 

Pull for a Cure raised $105,000 this year! All of the proceeds will be donated to FARA in efforts to find a cure and treatment for Friedreich’s Ataxia.

Thank you so much to the Mezrah family for hosting the event, along with the Hunters & Liars Club (my dad and all of his friends)! Also, a big thank you to all of the volunteers at the event and thank you to everyone who attended, donated to FARA and had a fun day! We are so grateful to Felicia Derosa and Ann Musheno for their amazing work and help with this successful event; we couldn’t do it without them."

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:
