On Sunday, October 14th, 2018, I had the pleasure of participating in the 10th Annual rideATAXIA Philly. I have been riding, raising funds and enjoying the event for the past few years now. This year was extra special to me because this October marked the 5th year since my diagnosis with FA. So when registration came out, I jumped at the opportunity to build a team again and get ready for the ride!
When it was time to get ready to go to the ride, I put on my rider jersey, my gear and ventured over to Montgomery County Community College with around 600 other riders. I participated in the 4-mile ride, which started at 10am. Alongside me, while I rode this year were my parents. I was also happy to have my grandma in attendance to support the FA community and me. My team, Team Head, was able to raise close to $3,000 this year and hope to raise that next year too.
