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.

Heading into the finish

Kyle & I in FARA Van 1 - sometimes known as goldie locks, gold van, sandpiper, golden nugget, saharah blaster, mean machine, and so on...
Approaching our final 10 miles!

Check out for the live video stream of our finish in Annapolis!

The Journey & the Friends You Take with You

Someone on the crew (I think it was Diane) remarked how grateful she was for the members of our crew that joined because they had a connection to FA through a friend. We draw a lot of parallels between the kind of terrain passed on this journey and a family's life with FA. Many times, I imagine, it is the uphill climb like the team is traveling now---where you just need to put your head down and keep turning the crank.

Raam finish webcam has a webcam set up at the finishline we should
be crossing at around 1:27 east coast time... Will try to update with
a better time estimate the closer we get... 50 miles out!

    GO guys GO! I just rode for an hour - did you feel the EXTRA FA power? Any wind beneath your wings, so to speak? How much can we sell Kyle's kisses for now, as a RAAM finisher????

    Seriously, you four & your crew have done something incredible & unbelievable & inconceivable ( & CRAZY)! Thank you all!!!!

Almost there!


Blanchester, Ohio....we're not positive where these signs came from, but we appreciate them nonetheless!! Maybe that support ran out of waiting time? Who knows. Thank you secret operatives of Blanchester!
