Take a Bite Out of CMT

for CMT Awareness Month!

Round up your furry friends for a Paw-some CMT Awareness Month this September with 


to raise CMT awareness and support research!

About This Year's Campaign "CMT is Ruff"

Although we’re not ready to say goodbye to summer, September is fast approaching and the Hereditary Neuropathy Foundation (HNF) is once again ready to take on Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) Disease. We are continuing our mission to increase awareness, raise research funds and find a cure for CMT! 

As patients, we know firsthand the challenges that come with living with CMT. We also know that it can be hard for others to understand what daily life is really like with a neurological disease… but there are those special kinds of friends who bring unconditional love as well as physical and emotional support for so many CMT patients… our pups!

Inspired by our favorite CMT Service Dog, Marvin, HNF would like to invite all dog owners (and non dog-owners) and their furry besties to take a bite out of CMT this September with 10 fun ways and events!

Round Up App

Donate Spare Change!

Download App!

HNF has partnered with an app called RoundUp that allows users to donate the change to support CMT research while rounding up to the next dollar from credit or debit card purchases – all automatically and without hassle.

You can even cap the maximum donation amount in a given month. For example, if your bill is $9.30 and you round up to the dollar, you would be donating .70 cents for CMT research. If 1000 people per month donated up to .70 per credit or debit card purchases and had at least 4 transactions each month that would generate $2,800 per month and $33,600 annually for CMT research!

Sign up today! https://www.hnf-cure.org/roundup-app/

Or simply download the app or use the web version at roundupapp.com. You’ll be able to create an account and choose HNF when prompted to select the organization you will support.

Let’s  spread the word by emailing friends and families or sharing on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!

We’re happy to answer any questions. Please email [email protected]
