As 2020 draws to a close, I reflect on the challenges, accomplishments, and continued generosity of our FA our community. One of the challenges we faced this year was the combination of increased research opportunities and fewer fundraising events.
This past Tuesday, aka Giving Tuesday, we launched our #GiftOfResearch campaign to help us close the funding gap and accelerate research momentum. As always, our community answered the call. We are excited to announce that Giving Tuesday kicked off our year-end campaign by raising over $95,000 which included a $25,00 generous match from Foley, Baron, Metzger & Juip, PLLC and a FARA Board Director.
Thank you to everyone that participated by creating an online fundraiser, donating, or by sharing photos and videos of why the #GiftOfResearch is important to you.
When you give the gift of research this holiday season, you are providing research tools and insights into Friedreich's ataxia. As you plan your holiday shopping, please consider giving the #GiftOfResearch to a loved one- gifting them an opportunity to be a part of the effort to find meaningful treatments and a cure for FA.
