I had the pleasure to attend my first Friedreich’s Ataxia (FA) Woodstock a couple of weeks ago (July 17-20, 2013) at the Flying H Ranch in La Porte, Indiana, which is the Hook’s family property. The Hook FAmily is a pillar of the community.
Wonderful volunteers in the Hook’s community pitched in to help create an awesome environment that is geared towards having fun and just being yourself, despite the challenges of FA.
There were many activities to participate in: yoga, tie-dying t-shirts, fishing, mosaic tiling, swimming, socializing, card playing, music entertainment, firework display, launching of Chinese lanterns, Ice-Cream machine to make cones, and the meals were FAbulous.
