Columbus Day weekend is my favorite weekend of the whole year. It is the one weekend a year when I go to Philadelphia and have the opportunity to see and hang out with my FAmily.
This Columbus Day weekend did not disappoint. On Saturday, my mom drove my brother, Chase, and I out to Philly so I could attend the Ambassador training program. This was so cool because instead of meeting and talking over WebEx, the FARA Ambassadors were able to sit around a table and learn more about FARA. One amazing thing that I learned was that FARA’s budget for 2015 is about $5 million. However, a mere ten years ago the budget was about $500,000! It amazes me how much FARA has grown in such a short amount of time. A majority of it can be attributed to grassroots fundraising along with rideATAXIA and the Energy Ball.
