Race for Matt & Grace set for Sept. 19-Oct. 3

The 11th annual FARA 5K Race for Matt & Grace will take place as a virtual event from Saturday, Sept. 19, through Saturday, Oct. 3.

Participants are invited to walk, run or roll wherever you choose, a local park, neighborhood, backyard, treadmill or bike, between those dates.

Organizers said, “Although we cannot be together in person this year, please consider joining us for a walk, run, or roll wherever you choose on any day(s) during the two weeks that work best for you.”

Register or give what you can at www.curefa.org/RFMG .

Registration is $30; friends and family can support your virtual participation with a contribution just as they have in the past.

“2020 has undoubtedly been a tough year for many of us; please simply give what you can. Among our objectives this year is to replicate as best as possible the energy and sense of community that has been so vibrant on race day during each of the past 10 years,” organizers said.

Race proceeds go toward the Friedreich’s Ataxia Research Alliance.

The race honors Friedreich’s Ataxia patients Matt Dilorio, Grace Hopkins, and Alex Fielding.
