CURE Ride 2011 from Nadir Bouhmouch on Vimeo.

"The C.U.R.E. Ride is meant to provide hope to people affected or carriers of LHON.  Since it's hereditary I'm hoping that we can find a cure in the near future so that my Mom, little sister, and little brother don't have to live in fear of going blind like I did" - Jeremy Poincenot

WHERE: Tour of Southern California- Santa Barbara to San Diego
 
WHY: Jeremy lost his central vision and became legally blind 5 years ago due to a rare hereditary disease called Leber's Hereditary Optic Neuropathy (LHON). Since LHON has no treatment or cure, and little to no public awareness of the disease, we have created an exciting event to raise as much money and awareness as possible to hopefully help uncover a treatment or cure for LHON.
 
HOW WILL THE MONEY HELP? The money raised on the ride will benefit Dr. Alfredo Sadun of the Doheny Eye Institute.  Dr. Sadun is on the cutting-edge of research working to find a cure for LHON.
