“It was hard and I’m still sore but I did it!,” says Zoe Penston.
On June 21, 2015, Team FARA was represented at “See Jane Run” in Alameda, CA. “See Jane Run” is a 5k and half marathon that is held annually and gives runners spectacular views of downtown San Francisco and the San Francisco Bay. Although this is an annual event, this was the first time Team FARA participated.
Zoe rallied friends to run for her two children, Izzy and Owen, who have Friedreich's Ataxia. Together, the team of 25 raised $11,136 for FARA.
Reflecting on the day, Zoe says, “The best thing from the day for me was crossing the finish line and having friends and family there cheering me on. It fills me with so much hope, just knowing that we have so many people surrounding us with love.”
