Bailey felt the bite of CMT when she was 3 years old. First, we noticed her feet turning inward, then she would fall several times a day while she was walking, eventually she started dropping to the ground without warning because her ankles couldn’t support her. At the age of 4, she got her first pair of AFOs (ankle-foot orthosis), which she wears every day. Now at the age of 9, she takes daily medication to help manage the nerve pain in her legs and wrists. These are just some of the effects that millions of people worldwide deal with every day because they have felt the bite of CMT.
Bailey’s Beat the Bite 5K is partnering with the Charcot-Marie-Tooth Association (CMTA), the premier not-for-profit organization (EIN #22-2480896) representing people with CMT to host our 3rd Annual 5K walk.
