Ride Ataxia is back!! After a good 3 month break, we can't wait to get back in the saddle for another epic journey. Words cannot express how successful Ride Ataxia I was. We raised $40,000 and with the help of the National Ataxia Foundation and the Friedreich's Ataxia Research Alliance we funded the $100,000 Kyle Bryant Translational Research Award. This money was awarded in June 2007 to the lab of Dr. Nuri Gueven at Queensland Institute of Medical Research in Australia. Find out more here.
The sky is the limit for Ride Ataxia II. This ride will start in Sacramento, CA on March 15 and will end March 28, 2008 in Las Vegas, NV at the National Ataxia Foundation annual membership meeting. We are very excited about this year's ride because we learned a lot last time and we would like to invite anyone who would like to ride for as long as they would like. The ride will be fully supported (sag, food, lodging) so mark your calendar and come along for the ride...more info to come.
