About Riding for Ataxia

Riding for Ataxia is one man’s mission to ride from Adelaide to Red Hill, while fundraising and creating awareness for Friedreich’s Ataxia research. Nick aims to finish his ride at the annual RideAtaxia fundraiser in Red Hill, Victoria. He aims to ride over 1,000 kilometres and will be riding at the start of October 2019. Nick suffers from FA and wants to help his FA community as much as he can before FA takes it away from him. Thank you for supporting Nick and his epic adventure!! You can also find Nick on Facebook at Riding for Ataxia


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.
