Morrisfest 2016Jul 5th, 2016 | By AndyBandit | Category: Tournaments
Morrisfest is back and looking to be better than ever! After a wonderful turnout to show support in 2015, the fat cat is strolling back out to Belmont Shore (between the parking lot and Granada Ave) to raise money for the CMTA Star Research Program. While Tara is unable to host it this year, she has allowed for me to take over and continue on with raising money for the program. With how well we did last year, let’s continue on with this FUNdraising tournament and hopefully bring more support to those affected by Charcot-Marie-Tooth.

**Charcot-Marie-Tooth disorder is a slowly progressive peripheral neuropathy that results in muscle atrophy and sensory loss in the arms and legs. It also causes chronic pain. Many people have never heard of CMT, but it is actually the most common type of inherited peripheral neuropathy, affecting one in 2,500 people. That means that almost 200 people in the Long Beach community have it and many of them don’t even know it.
