Neurofibromatosis Midwest


Great Steps 4 NF

Great Steps Crowd

Join the NF community and participate in a Walk for Neurofibromatosis! The Great Steps 4NF™ Walks include the largest walk for neurofibromatosis in the country in Naperville, IL. These walks bring co-workers, friends and family together as one community for the neurofibromatosis cause. Every walk varies in size but all have fun and friendship as the theme and our loved ones with NF as the center. Often they include our hallmark trait of passing out goodies along the walkway.

The goal of our Great Steps Neurofibromatosis Walks is to raise awareness and funds. The bulk of this comes from the work that our teams put in during the months before. Most teams create a personal fundraising page to raise awareness and funds by spreading the word through social media. Some teams have third party events that also raise funds and especially raise awareness because they bring their story out into the public.

Learn more about third party events and how you can really step forward for the cause and raise for your Great Steps team.
