Team Stephanie’s Hope is on a mission to raise $10,000 by Race Day, October 9, 2011, to fund research to discover treatment and a cure for Friedreich’s Ataxia (FA).
Friedreich’s Ataxia is a rare, life-shortening, nuerodegenerative disease which affects approximately 1 in 50,000 people in the United States. There is currently no cure or effective treatment but exciting research is happening all around the world. In fact, RESEARCHERS NOW BELIEVE WE ARE IN THE TREATMENT ERA!
The excitement and hopeful promise generated by the current research is fueling Team Stephanie’s Hope in our fundraising efforts. We would be so blessed and thankful if you would partner with us as we RUN FOR A CURE!
ALL DONATIONS TO TEAM STEPHANIE’S HOPE GO DIRECTLY TO THE FRIEDREICH’S ATAXIA RESEARCH ALLIANCE (FARA). FARA is a qualified, 501(c)3, non-profit organization dedicated to stopping Friedreich’s Ataxia in it’s tracks.
100% of all funds donated to and raised for Stephanie’s Hope & FARA go directly to fund important research.
