Wiffle Ball Tournament & Family Fun Day Benefitting FARA Saturday, October 18, 2014 In honor of Hannah and Austin Stacks
Swing Away is held at Cabin Fever Farm, the home of Mike & Sue Thomas, generous supporters each year, in Dawsonville, Georgia, about an hour north of Atlanta. The beautiful autumn weather brought together 8 tournament teams. This year’s event had approximately 250 people in attendance and has raised $42,000 and counting with the event and the letter writing campaign combined -- reaching $185,000 total since Swing Away began in 2010!
Nine ataxia families, including the Stacks and FARA Ride Ataxia Founder and Director, Kyle Bryant, cheered on the tournament teams and shared their reasons to keep fighting FA. A nail-biting silent auction, sold-out t-shirt sales, and raffle items (including a week stay at an accessible, 6-bedroom 1 in a Million cabin located in the Smokey Mountains; and a $1000 travel voucher for use with their travel agency, Cruise Planners, Etc.) were matched with an awesome barbecue lunch, pumpkin painting, bouncy houses, and a great DJ, that kept everyone excited.

Congrats to Hannah and Austin to soon be receiving a fully accessible, bathroom remodel, thanks to Sunshine on a Ranney Day. You both deserve it! We can’t wait to see the finished product!
