To finish the month strong, Horizon Therapeutics has pledged to match $10,000 in fundraising for each campaign starting today and through the end of May!
That's a total of $20,000 in pledged funds from Horizon Therapeutics, if we can raise $10,000 for Lend Us Some Muscle and $10,000 for rideATAXIA NorCal in the next two weeks!

Lend Us Some Muscle
Lend Us Some Muscle was established in Australia in 2017 to help find a cure for FA. In honor of FA Awareness Month, FARA-US is proud to take part in this now global campaign.

This year, through the whole month of May, we are going to Flex (at Home) for FA, then share the innovative ways we are exercising and flexing by posting to social media.

  1. Flex for FA (and post to social)
  2. Tag Four Friends (to challenge them to flex too)
  3. Raise funds for research (whatever you are able to contribute is appreciated)

rideATAXIA NorCal Virtual Challenge
So far, we have raised $35,177 on our way to our goal of $50,000 for FA research! Our activity goal for the month is to virtually travel the distance from our office in Downingtown, PA to the site of the ride in Winters, CA . . . eleven times, in honor of this being the 11th annual NorCal event. We are a little over two weeks into the challenge, and we've crossed the country as a team six times! Look for weekly updates on our progress on  rideATAXIA social media  and help us reach our goal by  joining our club on Strava  and logging your miles with us.
