* What is neurofibromatosis? It’s a long scary sounding word for a genetic condition of the nervous system which causes tumors to form on and inside the body. This progressive disorder does not discriminate and affects more than 120,000 Americans, making it one of the most common rare genetic disorders.
Our mission with our 5K’s is to bring NF families together, fund research, and spread awareness through fresh air and fun! If you would like to learn more about NF, go to nfnetwork.org.
