Description

#NFStrong events take place in communities nationwide.  These inspiring events create strong bonds that build a supportive NF community.  The goal of these strong communities is to rally together and become one great voice in finding affective treatments and an eventual cure for NF.  The events are a great way to involve family and friends, meet others who are affected by NF, while raising awareness of this disorder and to create funding for NF research.

Take your first Strong Step towards helping us find a cure by registering, and then fundraising for an event near you.
