Fun Runs for CMT

Many of you may not know becuase I haven't really told anyone, that I have a condition called Charcot Marie Tooth (or CMT). My Dad, Uncle and Grandmother also have it. It causes weakness in my legs and feet which means I have trouble walking and running. I trip a lot because I have foot drop and I now have to wear leg braces to hold my feet in the right position and stop me from tripping. I also get a lot of pain in my feet, especially if I have to walk or run long distances. The best thing I can do is stay active and keep my muscles working. I have decided to do the Noosa triathlon with a couple of friends and raise money for CMT Australia to try and raise awareness and help with research to find a cure for CMT. Hugh will be swimming 1500m, I will be cycling 40km and Katie will be running 10km. We would love you to donate and help us raise money for this cause.
