New School West Trike-A-Thon

Greetings New School West Trike-A-Thon Fans!

Support your favorite rider by giving to a really worthy cause: the fight to find a cure for Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva (FOP). NSW Alum Sona was diagnosed with FOP a few months after she graduated. FOP is one of the rarest and most debilitating genetic diseases known, but there is great hope for finding a treatment with active research going on around the world. Your donation in the name of your amazing little rider goes directly to support that work through the International FOP Assocation's Research Grant program that Sona helped to start!


Sona loved her time at NSW and participating in the Trike-A-Thon. We are so grateful to the New School West community for giving hope to Sona!
