Nebraska Ataxia hosts monthly Support Group Activities which include Support Group Meetings and Social Events. The organization also hosts Fundraising Events throughout the year.

Support Group Meetings – During each Nebraska Ataxia support group meeting, an outside expert educates the group on a topic of interest to our members. Ataxians and caregivers then divide into two groups to discuss the issues and emotions at the forefront of their day with the assistance of certified mental health therapists. Nebraska Ataxia’s support group meets on the third Saturday of every other month.

To join virtually over Zoom if you cannot attend in person, email at least 48 hours in advance for the link.

Social Events –  Those with Ataxia and their caregivers often feel isolated. To counter that, Nebraska Ataxia has social events on the third Saturday during months the support group does not meet.

Although all events are planned and scheduled in advance, they may be subject to change

Nebraska Ataxia Fundraising Events –  The fundraising events provide a fun way for the community to financially support Nebraska Ataxia’s mission to help those affected by Ataxia through direct assistance, community and professional education and awareness, support for caregivers, and funding for medical therapies, equipment, and research. Opportunities to attend, donate, or volunteer are available for each event. Our signature fundraising events include:

  • The Engagement Party Gala
  • Golf Challenge
  • Trivia Night
