Team CMT is a group of 62 athletes running to raise awareness of Charcot Marie Tooth or CMT. CMT is the most common inherited neurological disease affecting 155,000 Americans. Team CMT member Chris Wodke will be running the Boston Marathon to raise awareness of CMT and money for CMT research. She has CMT and people with CMT for years have been told not to run, that it would accelerate their disease. The research project she is raising money for will study the affect of exercise on CMT and help to develop exercise recommendations for those with CMT.
