You may have heard that the Friedreich's Ataxia Research Alliance (FARA) event, rideATAXIA, has gone GLOBAL this year!

We are pleased to be part of the event and would love you to get involved, too. 

rideATAXIA is combining the efforts of Philly, Dallas and the worldwide rideATAXIA community to create the rideATAXIA Global Challenge. Everyone who takes part via walking, running or cycling can track their miles in the Strava team (details on how to join below) and together you'll make a collective effort to hit 24,901 miles / 40,074 KM. 

If cycling isn't for you, you can still take part by choosing a different activity e.g. walking, yoga, dancing... then setting a goal for the month (until 24 October). 

Here is how you get involved: 

1. Select your activity (cycling, running, walking, wheeling, stander, yoga…) and goal until 24 October

2. Email our fundraising team on [email protected] so we can register you and send you a fundraising pack

3. Join the Strava team here to track your miles

4. For any activity apart from cycling, running, or walking, you can use the downloadable Activity Log to convert your miles (10 minutes = 1 mile!)

5. We would love you to fundraise alongside your challenge; please set up a JustGiving page or VirginMoney page here - choose Ataxia UK as the charity

6. Follow rideATAXIA on social media for updates Facebook, Twitter, Instagram.

Thank you - we can't wait to hear from you!
