FARA is excited to be working with the brothers of Sigma Phi Epsilon at Quinnipiac University in Hamden, Connecticut, and veteran fundraisers Sam and Alex Bode, and FARA founding board member Mary Caruso on rideATAXIA+ CT.
This 10 mile bike ride fundraiser is in honor of Joey Mullaney, a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon at Quinnipiac, and Sam and Alex Bode.
The brothers have been getting a lot of attention lately because of a video they made about helping Joey to the top of a peak near campus:
rideATAXIA+ CT will take place on October 11, 2015. For details about the event please visit rideataxia.org/plusct.
rideATAXIA+ seeks to empower local communities to organize neighborhood bike rides to raise funds for FARA's mission to treat and cure FA through research. In the spirit of rideATAXIA, these grassroots rides include participants of all abilities with route distances of 10 miles or less on a bike trail or low traffic neighborhood roads. Each ride is followed by a gathering to celebrate the camaraderie that drives us toward the ultimate finish line - treatments and a cure.
