Team CHM

Since the inception of the Choroideremia Research Foundation in 2000, numerous athletes have pushed their limits while raising money critical to finding a cure for CHM. These individuals, many with limited sight themselves, along with their families, friends, and supporters, have been an integral part of driving research through their remarkable physical efforts by raising money and awareness that has brought us to the brink of a treatment for Choroideremia!
