Lacing Up For Ethan!!

W hen you visit Seth Woodard over the next couple of weeks, you are likely to see students sporting bright yellow shoelaces. Behind the shoelaces is a cause that helps support one of our Seth Woodard students, Ethan. At a young age, Ethan was diagnosed with a rare neuropathic disease, Charcot Marie Tooth Disease Type 4J (CMT4J). Currently, around two dozen individuals in the world have been diagnosed with CMT4J. In an effort to support research for Ethan and other individuals with CMT4J, students may purchase shoelaces for $5.00 in the main office. Additional activities in the ensuing months are being planned to support research and a cure. To learn more about CMT4J check out the following link: http://curecmt4j.org/
