FBMJ Hosts Movie Fundraiser to Help Friedreich’s Ataxia Patients

FBMJ is proud to sponsor a very special event, Friday, December 20, 2019 – a movie fundraiser featuring the highly anticipated premiere of the movie Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. This charity event will help support a cause that is near and dear to our hearts – helping find a cure for Friedreich’s Ataxia (FA), a rare, genetic, degenerative neuro-muscular disorder affecting one in 50,000 people in the U.S.

FBMJ invites you to be among the first to see the premiere of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker – the conclusion to the epic Star Wars saga, while at the same time helping researchers find a cure for this inexorably progressive, degenerative neuromuscular disease. 100% of all funds raised at the event will go directly to the Friedreich’s Ataxia Research Alliance (FARA), a national, non-profit organization dedicated to finding treatments and a cure for FA.
