About Lend Us Some Muscle 2018

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...  

SOME IDEAS

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.

About FARA

Imagine being a kid or a teenager and being told you have a degenerative muscle disease which will lead to a loss of muscle co-ordination, fatigue, vision impairment, hearing loss, slurred speech and then a serious heart condition - this is Friedreich Ataxia. 1 in every 30,000 affected. 1 in 90 are carriers. 

The Friedreich Ataxia Research Association (fara) is a not for profit organisation that supports research into treatments and a cure for Friedreich Ataxia. fara does not receive State or Commonwealth Government support and relies largely on the family and friends of Friedreich Ataxia patients and generous businesses within Australia and New Zealand to fund its research programs.  

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.
