Hold A Community Event For NF
Be the change! Hold a Community Event for Neurofibromatosis!
A community event is a fundraising or awareness activity by a group or individual outside of the NF Upper Midwest in which we have little or no staff involvement or responsibility. Funds from these events help to continue to support our mission and the NF community. From hosting a dinner party, pub crawl, trivia night, skate-a-thon, to donating proceeds from product sales, there are countless ways to raise funds and awareness for NF Upper Midwest and there are endless possibilities. We are excited to hear what you have in mind. If you need help just give us a call and we can explore your ideas together.
