About CMT

A degenerative, often debilitating muscular disease, Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease or CMT, affects more than 2.6 million people worldwide.  It affects the nerves that carry information from the brain and spinal cord to the rest of the body.  Muscles may lose their normal function and sensation in lower legs or feet, or hands or arms.

In many cases, doctors tell patients that they shouldn’t run or workout. Don’t tell members of Team CMT that.  In fact, physical activity in their cases, has helped stem the loss of muscle control that accompanies the disease.
