On Sunday, May 6, 2018, Team CMT took to the New York City streets to conquer 42 miles of the TD Bank Five Boro Bike Tour through each of Manhattan’s five boroughs! The team was made up of patients, caregivers, family members, friends, and even a neurologist who specializes in CMT.
“What an amazing, unique way to see the city! This was my fifth time riding with Team CMT to raise money for HNF. Each year is more inspiring and fun than the one prior. I just love the array of musicians and performers cheering us along the 42 miles up and down hills, bridges, ramps, around NYC’s famous potholes, weaving through a throng of 36,000 other riders. A pleasure and an honor to ride and raise money for treatment and research for this underrepresented condition.” — Tess Quadrozzi – Bike Rider, Fundraiser, Friend
“The Five Boro Bike Tour was amazing! They did an amazing job coordinating and organizing such a huge crowd. The energy was felt from the moment I arrived and lasted until we cruised through the finish line! I specially loved that we were able to represent HNF and our fight to raise money and awareness for Charcot Marie Tooth disease. Can’t wait to do it again next year!!!” — Debi Houliares, CMT6 Caregiver
HNF has been fortunate to be included as a charity team in the event for the past six years.
We are thrilled to report we raised over $23,000 for HNF’s Therapeutic Research in Accelerated Discovery (TRIAD) program—a collaborative effort with academia, government and industry—to develop treatments for CMT.
It’s not too late to make a donation!
