Why We Cycle 4 CMT
Aeden and Austen
"Cycle 4 CMT was a really fun event that allowed me to raise awareness for CMT in a fun way. My brother and I raised money so that hopefully scientists will find a cure for CMT in the future. I will raise more money than my brother this year. LOL"
""I can't wait to do Cycle 4 CMT again! I had a blast riding my bike around with friends raising money for a cure. This year I will raise as much money as I can!"
"Why do I enjoy Cycle 4CMT so much? I have CMT1X and the CMTA has my back, really that simple. I think of this as a way to give back to them knowing their efforts are in my best interest and the interests of others with CMT. My family and friends gather the night(s) before the ride for food and conversation. It’s a great way for me to talk about my CMT, which I don’t often discuss, a brief period to let everyone know what’s going on. The day of the ride is a fun-filled gathering that I think of as a family picnic. Again, CMT is the focus and the day brings with it hope, support, and kinship. In the end, I know the money raised is for an excellent cause and I feel a lot of pride in being able to raise money for the CMTA to use in the coming years in support of research and development of treatments. I truly hope you all join a ride, bring your friends and family and have a blast."
My 11-year-old son and I both have CMT Type 1A. We ride to support critical research for possible treatments, to promote awareness of this hereditary neuropathy, and to aid the CMTA in providing opportunities for community for CMT kids across the country. We ride because it feels good and hopeful to actively do something about a disease that has no cure and that dictates so much of our lives; and, because we are still physically able to ride at this point…and that’s worth celebrating!” —Garrett Guidroz
