In July of 2012, our daughter Alison Price was diagnosed with Friedreich’s Ataxia. Alison has experienced increasing neurological changes since that time. She struggles to walk on her own, but keeps trying and uses equipment and help as needed. Unfortunately, her heart is affected as well.
My sister Jill Gould, who lives in Largo, Florida and has been helping different groups raise money over the past decade, quickly jumped on board with our FAmily. We discussed a number of ways in which we could raise money. Jill had gotten into running so we decided we would find a half marathon to run and put a Team FARA together. Alison named us Team Mustangs after her interest in horses at that time. We decided that the Savannah Rock and Roll Half-Marathon in November 2013 would be our first race as Team Mustangs for Alison. Savannah is half way between Largo, Florida and Wake Forest, North Carolina. Jill gathered her team in Florida, I gathered mine from Raleigh, and we met in the middle with our sister Amy, a Georgia resident.
