Thanks to Sasha Goldstein for writing an article about the Cycle 4 CMT in Vermont’s 7 Days! Please share!
Earlier this month, Chris Ouellette set out from his Shelburne home for a bike ride around Vermont. His goal: three days and 300 miles in honor of 3 million people worldwide battling Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease.
One of them is Ouellette’s nephew, Yohan Bouchard, who was diagnosed with the degenerative nerve condition at age 7. Seeing his once-active nephew sidelined by the disease prompted Ouellette to get involved in finding a cure. In 2014, he joined the board of the Charcot-Marie-Tooth Association, a national nonprofit that raises awareness and funds research.
