The main reason for Team FARA's participation in RAAM is to raise awareness for the cause. Few people have heard of Friedreich's ataxia so media support is very valuable to us. If you are located near the route and would like to spread the word to our local media for potential newspaper/radio/TV appearances as we are traveling through your town we will provide materials and support for you.
If you would like to pitch this story to any connections you may have in the Media please contact us and we will get that going.
When the race is over, it's over. We would like this experience to live on in support of the cause long after we cross the finish line in Annapolis. If you or someone you know is an aspiring film student or a seasoned professional looking for a project, please contact us.
