IT’S A CHALLENGE!
As we know, people living with FA are physically challenged every day. So to support them, we are challenging ourselves to share their story and raise money for ground breaking research to help find a cure.
SO WHAT CAN I DO?
It’s simple. Put your muscles to the test. Challenge yourself, your friends, your family or your classmates to a show of strength. Sure, you could do a big bike ride or run a marathon, or just do something that you normally find a little hard, but we reckon it’ll be more fun if you challenge yourself to do something a little different with those muscles of yours...
Put on an arm-wrestle comp at work
Or chin ups on the monkey bars at the park
Maybe get your whole school to do a sponsored plank
Or a group bench press at your local gym.
You could even organise a tug-of-war on the beach.
Money raised will help establish our first clinical gene therapy trials in Australia, which will help find new treatments and a cure for Friedreich Ataxia.
