Our Vision:

A World Without Ataxia.

Ensuring no one experiences Ataxia alone, until no one experiences Ataxia, period.

Our Mission

To accelerate the development of treatments and a cure while working to improve the lives of those living with Ataxia.

Join ACCELERATE! To Get Involved

Accelerate! is a $1 million annual fund to accelerate our ability to improve the lives of those living with Ataxia. It is designed to raise funds in order to speed up our advocacy efforts, including:

  • New legislation important to our community and progress
  • Add more resources for the 65+ support groups
  • Educate our community about genetic testing including providing genetic counseling and testing for all those living with Ataxia 
  • Create a national, regional, and local Ataxia Awareness campaign to accelerate the understanding of Ataxia.
