2014 In Review
2014 was a fantastic year full of wonderful and valuable experiences. The Ambassador Program took the first half of the year to re-focus and re-organize the program and it's goals to help the community. We are our excited about our renewed and refreshed direction and look forward to continuing to support FARA, our community and bring everyone together with hope for the future! In June, the Program blog was re-launched and it has been a growing success so far. We have loved featuring community members in “Spotlight” posts and blogs about so many awesome FARA fundraisers…grassroots events, Ride Ataxia, Team FARA, the Energy Ball and everything in between! Every Monday is a "Meet the Community” interview which gives members of our FA community opportunity to introduce themselves. We've met great new friends and are excited to meet more!
Our Card Outreach team has been very busy spreading gratitude and encouragement to mailboxes all over the country (and other countries too!). We’ve also loved the opportunity to connect with a few of the incredible pharmaceutical companies that have come along side FARA with passion and dedication to drug discovery and development. In December, we started "hangouts", which is openly available on Google for anyone living with FA to gather as a group via video chat to discuss certain topics pertaining to FA. The very first hangouts were a huge success, we’re looking forward to many more to come!
