Fundraising for NF Midwest

NF Midwest can’t exist without your help. We rely on the fundraising of our driven, dedicated NF community.

Fundraising for NF Midwest

Funds raised are used for research, improving clinical care and awareness. This includes the expense of direct grants to researchers and clinicians, as well as the expense of programs such as our symposium and the everyday cost of providing assistance to families looking for support and information.

Great Steps 4NF Walks®

Our Great Steps 4NF® walks bring  friends, family and co-workers together as one community for the neurofibromatosis cause. They are full of fun and friendship and raise funds and awareness for NF.
