45-year-old Dan Webb, of Warminster, plans to ride in Sunday’s Ride Ataxia Event and is warming up along the Schuylkill River with Ride Ataxia Founder Kyle Bryant. Webb keeps in shape by riding his hand cycle three times a week using equipment specifically designed to accommodate an injury he sustained 4 years ago.

Hundreds of people will be gathering this Sunday, October 12th in Blue Bell Pennsylvania for the 6th annual Ride Ataxia event that helps in the fight to find a cure for the rare disease called Friedreich’s Ataxia. Two area non-profits are putting their muscle to good use by helping people who need adaptive equipment. Both the IM ABLE Foundation and The Pennsylvania Center for Adaptive Sports plan to provide some hand cycles for Sunday’s event to support Kyle Bryant and others in the FA Community.
