9:00AM – 12:00PM

This event will begin in the Willow Bay section of the park.

Funds raised by the Walk 4 CMT campaign fuel the CMTA to find treatments for CMT and ultimately a cure. 
Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) is the most commonly inherited peripheral neuropathy, estimated to affect one in every 2,500 people, more than 2.8 million worldwide, without regard to age, gender or ethnicity. Identified in 1886 by three physicians - Jean-Martin Charcot, Pierre Marie and Howard Henry Tooth - CMT is a progressive disorder that slowly damages the nerve cells leading to a person's extremities. There is no way to predict how far or how fast the disease will progress, and the severity varies widely from person to person. Some are able to go about their lives with only moderate difficulty, while others require greater assistance. In rare cases, CMT can be fatal.
