Register as soon as possible for the walk
that you want to participate in so that you can start raising funds. By registering you also help us know how many t-shirts, volunteers and how much food to have.

Step Two – Form a Team
Forming a team gets your family and friends involved in reaching your NF goal. Create a team name and elect a captain who will be responsible for exchanging information with team members. Encourage others to join you and have fun by creating a “team theme” and have a friendly competition with other teams to be the “top fundraiser”. Prizes are given for best accessories and top fund raising teams.
Step Three – Raise Funds and Awareness
Remember, raising funds also raises awareness! Start early and reach out to friends and family. Ask your coworkers and neighbors to help you reach your goals. Help your teammates in their fundraising efforts. Once you are registered we have materials to help you in your fundraising efforts as well as emails that give great tips. We’ll help you every STEP of the way!
We look forward to seeing you! Enjoy a great day with other individuals and families that also strive to find better treatments and a cure for NF.
