Ride Ataxia Orlando was another success!! This was my second year attending and am proud to say my first year actually being IN the ride on my new handcycle!
The turn out of participants was amazing. And we came together for a beautiful day filled with sunshine, scenic rides, and togetherness. I personally was a recipient of this year's Ataxian Athlete Initiative grant and received a brand new handcycle from Top End in August so I can ride to spread awareness for FA. Others that received grants of this year and last were Lealan LaRoche, Barry Rice, Mary Vida, and Bill Ramsey, and myself. Together more than 200 participants rode 50, 25, 16, and 4 miles to pedal towards a cure.
