Party Ride

Distance - 40 miles or 20 miles if you only ride one way! Your choice. Transportation is up to you.

This is the 5th year for this ride!

Nancy & Ken Carlson have organized this charity ride to raise funds and awareness for their son's disability, Fragile X Syndrome.

Nancy is a board member of the parent led National Fragile X Foundation, Heartland Chapter which serves families in Iowa and South Dakota.

This all volunteer group is part of the National Fragile X Foundation's Chapter network . It serves as a resource for professionals and parents. Through fundraisers, educational seminars and charitable donations, the group provides support for advocacy efforts for Fragile X causes and research and provides financial resources for families to access Fragile X clinics.
