The FA Project is committed towards creating awareness of Friedreich's Ataxia, a life altering disease. We aim to educate the public by increasing the visibility of related information & resources and creating a support system for those afflicted with FA. Ultimately it is our goal to provide those living with FA the tools and resources necessary to lead the best life possible.

On June 20, 2009, The FA Project hosted its Inaugural Summer Party at The Stadium Bar & Grill in South Boston, MA. With entertainment provided by Felix Brown ( and over 160 people in attendance, we were able to raise $6,000. Of those funds, a $1,000 donation will be made to FARA through our Platinum Sponsorship of the Fuzzy Buzzy Golf Tournament (September 2009).

With the remaining funds, donations to individuals afflicted with FA are planned. Currently, the FA Project is soliciting applications for donations to improve the lives of those dealing with FA and looks forward to sharing news soon regarding such assistance. Assistance may include improvements to someone’s home (i.e. grab bars in shower, widening doorways for wheelchairs, adding ramps for wheelchair access, etc), assisting with travel costs for medical trials, physical therapy subsidizing and much much more.
