The phenomenal success of this year’s 5th Annual Cycle 4 CMT event reflects our supporters’ ever-increasing dedication, enthusiasm, and commitment toward funding treatments to end to CMT.
We want to whole-heartedly thank our 70 superstar event sponsors, 500 generous supporters/donors, 165+ enthusiastic participants (cyclists, walkers, after-party attendees, invaluable volunteers and virtual trailblazers) as well as every single person who helped spread the word of the event and brought awareness to our cause.
According to preliminary tallies, together, we have raised right around $150,000 this year, bringing our 5-year total to a whopping $800,000! That’s $800,000 to advance the CMTA’s STAR research program, bringing us that much closer to clinical trials and ultimately, pharmaceutical treatments to stop the progression of CMT.
If you have not had time to make a contribution to this year’s Cycle 4 CMT event, IT’S NOT TOO LATE! Please DONATE and show your support with a monetary gift.
Reflecting upon the increasing popularity of the Cycle 4 CMT event, organizer Chris Ouellette noted, “This event would not have been such a success without our growing community’s financial backing, involvement and ongoing partnerships. Your gifts of time, energy and enthusiastic support are truly making an indelible impact on the lives of Yohan, Riley and the 3 million children and adults who struggle with the progressive symptoms of CMT every single day.”
Thank you for caring and believing in the CMTA’s vision of a world without CMT. There’s never been a better time to get involved and invest in treatment-focused research to thwart the biggest little-known genetic disease of all time – Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease or CMT.
