Team FARA Logo

Team FARA is made up of people around the globe who participate in endurance events on behalf of the Friedreich's Ataxia Research Alliance (FARA) with the goal of raising awareness and funds for FA research. Past Team FARA members have registered as individuals and groups in local marathons, ½ marathons, triathlons, ironman competitions, bike tours, 5K runs and even organized their own summit climbs. With the FARA name in their fundraising materials, local press releases, and on their race jerseys, Team FARA members are introducing the general public to this rare disease and the importance of supporting FA research.

FARA will provide a Team FARA running jersey to anyone who sets up a fundraising page and begins fundraising. Those raising $750 or more will also receive an additional FARA branded award.
