The Charcot-Marie-Tooth Association (CMTA) is proud to announce its Reach for The STARs campaign, a good-will/fundraising initiative driven by the generosity of your customers/students. The campaign’s mission is to build awareness of CMT—which affects one in 2,500 people in our community, many of whom are unaware that they have it—and to raise critical research funds for the CMTA. Stars have represented the CMTA since 2008, when we launched our premier research program called STAR (Strategy to Accelerate Research). With your help, we are going to make them an even bigger presence with our paper STARS!

Community partners can help us provide people with CMT help for today and hope for tomorrow simply by selling our paper STARs to their customers for $1 or more. After customers write their name on the STAR to signify that they donated, the STARswill be proudly displayed in the business or school.

This is a fun and easy fundraising campaign that typically runs for four weeks. Support your local CMTA Reach for the Stars campaign and help us in our mission to END CMT! How do businesses and schools benefit from this? Reach for the Stars can be used to build a strong team, increase morale and provide the opportunity to create community connections bringing individuals, families and local businesses/schools together for a common goal. Plus, people will feel good about patronizing a store or attending a school that gives back to its community. Best of all, you can raise a good amount of money for Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease at no financial cost to you! Of course, the best reason for participating in this campaign is the satisfaction you and your employees will have knowing the money raised will help the 2.8 million people affected by CMT.
