Join Run4NF!

Facing a diagnosis of NF, living with NF, or loving someone affected with this disorder, creates a multitude of feelings, concerns and questions.  By joining Run4NF, you will be creating opportunities for a better today for someone with NF.  Funds will be used to create better NF treatment in the clinics, better NF understanding in the labs and better knowledge of management of NF care.  Interacting with others dealing with NF is empowering.
