Lite the Night on FIRE, a benefit for FAST

FAST is committed to raising at least $20 million to continue support of the FIRE Initiative (FAST Integrative Research Environment), the most aggressive, collaborative research initiative to date in identifying treatments and a cure for AS. The Fire Initiative spans four universities, funding more than 24 scientists working on drug discovery, gene therapies, new animal models and technologies as well as further elucidating the genetic mechanisms that cause AS. In just 2 years, the FIRE team has identified 3 potential drug treatments, 2 potential gene therapies and is developing 2 novel animal models. With sufficient funding, we can move these advances from the lab to our children who so desperately need them.
FAST has funded over $3 million in ground-breaking research and has recently announced the first-ever sponsored clinical trial of a potential treatment of AS scheduled to begin later this year.
Your support is our driving force! If you are unable to make it, please consider making a donation.
This year’s event is presented by: F.W. WEBB Company
