FARA fundraising gig

Coming up on October 15th here in Palmie there is going to be the FARA fundraising gig, organised by a friend of mine. 

From the ticket:
"Friedreich Ataxia Research Association (FARA) Fundraising Gig. 
Friedrichs Ataxia is a degenerative neuro-muscular disorder affecting a number of young New Zealanders. There is currently no treatment or cure for this debilitating and life-shortening disease. FARA is a non profit organisation dedicated to supporting families with FA and promoting research that will improve the quality and longevity and ultimately lead to a treatment and cure."

If you live locally, you can come along and jive to the band, "Ruff n Ready".  (Contact me via comments and I can tell you more about getting a ticket.) 

But I know most of my readers aren't local. You can read more about the Australian-based FARA organisation here, and the site has info about the research into a clinical drug trial for Friedreich Ataxia. If you would like to support this cause, here is a fundraising page for this Palmie gig.
