Although we're not participating in the ride this year, many others are. The 2009 Ride Ataxia III has 70 riders and the fundraising has now reached $175,000! The team is doing a GREAT job, riding in four days from Portland, Oregon to Seattle, Washington in the pouring rain. sleet, and hail. This year the riders include FA patients, parents, researcher doctors, FARA employees, and even Outback Steakhouse employees. Read more about it at one (or all) of these places:
And a big thanks to Outback Steakhouse for their excellent support over the years, including providing all of the dinners for the ride this year and fundraising at their restaurants throughout the Northwest.
Way to go team!!!
