fara hosts a number of activities each year but our flagship fundraising events are the fara Gala, the Lend Us Some Muscle Challenge and rideATAXIA Australia, a cycling event on the Mornington Peninsula

fara GALA

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. 

Get in early and book your table for our first fara GALA Sydney to be held on Friday, 5 April 2019 (https://www.eventbrite.com/e/fara-gala-sydney-2019-tickets-51497324885) followed by the fara GALA Melbourne on Friday, 3 May (https://www.eventbrite.com/e/fara-gala-melbourne-2019-tickets-51497615755).




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 was even bigger. The Lend Us Some Muscle Challenge will be held again in May 2019.
