Team FARA Blog

Team FARA members are running, walking, biking and swimming for FA research around the world.

While they are geographically dispersed, Team FARA is united with the same goal: to draw attention to FA through acts of physical endurance and to support the advancement of FA research towards treatments and a cure for FA.

Final push

I realize the posts are getting less frequent but we are making the final push. We have slowed down a bit in the rolling hills of Pennsylvania. John and I just finished our toughest shift of the entire trip and Sean and Mike are out battling the hills right now. 140 miles to go!

Finish Strong

Page 146 contains the Special Instructions for Finish - 91.2 miles to
go. All 4 riders will ride the final 54.6 miles together from Mount
Airy, MD to Annapolis...may I suggest you join them?

    Cheers and gratitude from Kansas. We feel blessed to have met you. You are such an inspirational team and crew. Thank you. Bless you.

    May the road rise up to meet you.
    May the wind always be at your back.
    May the sun shine warm upon your face,
    and rains fall soft upon your fields.
    And until we meet again,
    May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

    Congratulations to an amazing group of riders and crew!!!! You've made it through and enlightened so many people about this debilitating disease. I'm so inspired by what you've accomplished! I'm right there with you in spirit, cheering you on through the finish line!




Mike B is at the helm on this beautiful evening as we cruise through Gettysburg while the riders battle a few miles behind us. If that doesn't paint the picture for you, see the photo.
