The Race for Matt & Grace committee welcomes you to a private screening of "The Ataxian." Unable to walk due to the neuromuscular disorder, Friedreich's ataxia (FA), Kyle Bryant and a team of friends attempt the most grueling bicycle race in the world, The Race Across America (RAAM). The feature-length documentary, "The Ataxian," spotlights a man whose will and determination carry him and his teammates across a continent under almost impossible conditions-an act that sparks others to take action in their own lives.
The screening will be held on March 30, 2017 at the Jane Pickens Theatre in Newport, RI. Space is limited, so please RSVP at curefa.org/Newport Tickets are available for a suggested donation of $20/ ticket to the Friedreich's Ataxia Research Alliance (FARA). Please type in your donation amount in the box below. (This field does not auto-populate.) Please help FARA continue its support of emerging research to ultimately treat and cure FA!
Please note - the Jane Pickens Theatre is a world-class movie house, renovated in a historic building from 1834. While the main theater is accessible to chairs and scooters, the restrooms located on the basement floor are not.
