Join me in my efforts to support Friedreich's Ataxia Research Alliance (FARA)!

For the past year and a half, I have been lucky enough to work with two amazing young women with Friedreich's Ataxia, Sara and Laura Ferrarone. On November 25, 2012, Sara passed away after a life-long battle with FA, which is a degenerative neuromuscular disorder. She is survived by her incredible family, and her sister Laura is still courageously battling the disease. When I began training for the Flower City Half Marathon, I knew that there could be no better motivation to finish the race than to do it for FARA in honor of Sara's memory and Laura's present fight. Sara clung firmly to hope, and though the past few months have been very difficult, FARA continues to provide hope for a cure. Iíve never run this far before, but Iím so thankful to have the ability to run, and this is an easy feat compared to what the Ferrarone family has endured. I sincerely thank everyone that has given me support in my efforts. Please know that the money raised on this website will be sent directly to the Friedreich's Ataxia Research Alliance (FARA), a non-profit, tax-exempt organization dedicated to curing Friedreich's Ataxia through research.
