Ataxia UK



I was randomly searching for Ataxia stuff today when I ran across this video from the Ataxia UK site. This guy Darran lifted 10 tonnes in 10 hours and raised 10,000 pounds for Ataxia UK. Good stuff, click here to watch the video.


Planning

 

 

I know I have been promising details for a while now. Well, I will keep you in suspense for a bit longer. Our team met tonight to put together the details. These dedicated few have been working very hard to arrange accomodations, plan a route, solicit donations, create promotional material and create awareness. We will have cyclist information packets in one week which should include all the information you need to plan your Ride Ataxia adventure.

Support

 

 

In the past couple of months I have been a few places with the Ride Ataxia banner and I have received emails from all over with picture attachments from Ride Ataxia supporters:

In September I made a trip to Seattle, WA to perform a wedding ceremony for two of my best friends Andy Smith and Kristine Strobin:

I became an Ordained Minister online for $19.50 and now the couple is happily married...

While I was in Seattle, it happened to be International Ataxia Awareness Day (September 25) so I had lunch with the Seattle area Support group:

The 2009 NAF Annual Membership Meeting will be held in Seattle. I cant wait to hang out with you all again!

I also hung out with a new friend, Sam. Here we are with the Space Needle in the back ground:


Friends from last year's ride have been representing for Ride Ataxia. The Henrys drove 3000 miles from Dallas to Charleston and back with Ride Ataxia signs plastered to their car. Here's Dave:

David "Spinner" Henry rode 400 miles with us last year and is training for the ride to Vegas this year:


The Bryants and the Krills show their support during a recent trip to Yosemite:


A couple of weeks ago, I attended NAF's All California Ataxia Research Meeting (ACARM). I met a lot of new friends and saw some old friends such as Dr. Susan Perlman and Dr. David Herman a dedicated researcher at Scripps University in San Diego. There were talks about research, massage therapy, physical therapy, and adaptive sports. I had a great time and took away some new knowledge.


Thank you all for contributing to the support of this cause, I encourage everyone to download their Ride Ataxia banner here and show your support, just email the picture to me at kyle@rideataxia.org.

We are making strides in the planning of Ride Ataxia II so stay tuned for details and save March 15-27, 2008 to join us for another epic journey.

Ride Ataxia Around the World

 

SHOW YOUR SUPPORT FOR RIDE ATAXIA

A few weeks ago a couple of my buddies from work (Adam Klecker and Guy Graening) climbed a peak near Yosemite. They carried with them a Ride Ataxia Banner and took pictures as they ascended the dome. This was a really cool way for two friends to show their support for Ride Ataxia.

The Dudes: Adam and Guy at the peak

Since then many of my friends, family, and co-workers have taken the opportunity to show their support. They have produced some pretty sweet pictures.

I would like to extend the opportunity to YOU. Download a copy of the Ride Ataxia Banner,take it to a sweet location (a park, a monument, in front of your house, in your easy chair, the top of a mountain), take a picture and send it to me at kyle@rideataxia.org. I'll post all the pictures here. I hope to hear from you soon!
