#StepUpforNF raises money, hope and awareness for people affected by neurofibromatosis.

Every summer, NF Upper Midwest hosts walks in St. Paul and Fargo for the NF community. Events include a walk (or roll), kids activities, raffle baskets, and lunch. It’s always a fun time for the whole family and a great opportunity to meet other local families affected by neurofibromatosis.

Funds raised from the event help NF Upper Midwest:

  • Provide financial assistance to individuals with NF who are facing NF-related issues or emergencies
  • Sponsor kids with NF to attend a residential camp for children and families with chronic health conditions
  • Award grants to attend NF-related conferences
  • Host informational forums
  • Lobby our congresspeople to ensure continued federal funding of NF-related research
