rideATAXIA Chicago took place in Channahon Central Park in Channahon, Illinois on July 19, 2015. July provides some tough weather (HOT!) for an outdoor physical event, but we had 370 riders and 20 teams. This was the fourth annual event and, in my opinion, has grown leaps and bounds! As of today, we raised over $72,000 and counting (I met my fundraising goal!). I am so honored to be a part of this event, it is so well organized and very empowering. rideATAXIA gives people with FA the opportunity to participate in an able-bodied ride in a safe and supportive event with people that understand the condition while educating everyone else!
