NF Walk

The Children's Tumor Foundation Walking for Research is a fun-filled event in which sponsored individuals walk a designated distance around a park or track. Walk events are held in cities across the United States each summer and fall.

Now you can NF WALK Everywhere

You pick the day and the place, and we’ll give you the tools to register. All you have to do next is invite your friends, and fundraise! NF Walk Everywhere is a versatile way to improve the lives of those living with neurofibromatosis (NF).

Do you already walk with friends? Could your office use a team building lunch hour?

Then why not pick a day to take a walk to raise awareness and funds for NF research? If there is an established NF Walk in your city and you’re unable to attend, you can join virtually and participate in your location on the same day.

All proceeds fund research and patient support to better the lives of individuals living with NF.

Now you can raise funds for a cure on a treadmill, in a park, on a school track, or walking around your office block!


  1. REGISTER for free and become a team captain
  2. OPEN a fundraising page (minimum individual fundraising goal $50)
  3. CREATE a team of walkers: friends, coworkers, book club members, your dog Fido, etc.
  4. PROMOTE your NF Walk Everywhere with our social media badge
  5. FUNDRAISE for an END to NF: We’ll send you easy-to-use tools to help you share what you are doing and fundraise. Click here to view fundraising incentives for our Rewards and Recognition Program

About NF Walk and Neurofibromatosis:

The NF Walk program brings the whole family together for a fun event in support of those affected by neurofibromatosis (NF), a genetic disorder that can cause tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body. NF affects one in every 3,000 people and can lead to blindness, bone abnormalities, cancer, deafness, disfigurement, learning disabilities, and disabling pain. Currently there are no effective treatments for NF, but we’re walking to change that.

NOTE: When you click on a badge it will open a .jpg image in a browser window of your computer or smartphone.  Depending on which device you have you can save the badge, or if you have an facebook app on your phone for example just post it on your personal page.
