Heartland Fragile X once again held an amazing and successful Fragile X awareness bike race!

Sixty-three riders and seventeen volunteers enjoyed great weather that day. A majority of them were returning from last year! Between the sponsors, the riders and the raffle raised more than $6000, beating last year’s fundraiser!

Nine families affected by Fragile X ayndrome participated in one way or another.

The group handed out over 280 business cards promoting the ride and businesses at the Des Moines Downtown Farmer’s Market bike valet in May.
