Fara hosts a number of activities each year but our flagship fundraising events are the fara Gala (held in April), the Lend Us Some Muscle Challenge (18-20 May 2018) and our inaugural rideATAXIA Australia cycling event on 28 October 2018 on the Mornington Peninsula.
Over 500 people attended our annual fara Gala in April 2018, which was held at the Peninsula, Docklands and raised over $110,000 for FA research.
Planning is already underway for our 2019 fara Gala. Stay tuned for more details.
LEND US SOME MUSCLE
People from all across the country got behind our inaugural Lend Us Some Muscle Challenge in 2017. They challenged themselves, their friends and their family to something physical. Some did a walk, a run, a cycle or a swim while others were more inventive and did an arm wrestle or tug of war. Participants got temporary Lend Us Some Muscle tatts and snapped themselves doing their challenge and shared it on Facebook and Instagram. 2018 promises to be even bigger. The Lend Us Some Muscle Challenge will be held on 18 - 20 May 2018.
