Our fundraisers are essential to our success. Not only do they raise much-needed funds for NF research, but they also expand the general public's awareness of NF wherever the fundraising events are held. Learn more about our fundraising programs and join our dedicated and passionate community of members fighting to make a difference.

Classrooms for a Cure

Kids helping kids! Our Classrooms for a Cure events - including Hero Dash fun runs and Change for NF fundraisers - are great ways to get your school, camp, or other youth organization involved in the mission of CTF while having a lot of fun (and the chance for your school or organization to earn great awards and recognition).

Fight NF your way! With the help of our regional staff, you can plan an event around your interests and talents to help fund NF research. Hold a bake sale, host a cocktail hour, put on an auction, organize a sports tournament... the possibilities are endless! LEARN MORE


Volunteers are the guiding force behind CTF and an intergral factor in raising both awareness and the research funds that will help us find a cure for NF. We have a variety of volunteer opportunities available in our fundraising programs, patient support services, and advocacy/awareness efforts.


Although we firmly believe we must do our part in funding and coordinating NF research, we also understand that the federal government plays a very unique and irreplaceable role in supporting these efforts. You can get involved by participating in events, writing to your government representatives, or even joining us on visits to the Hill.

Raise Awareness

Honor our NF Heroes and make a difference to end NF by increasing public awareness of neurofibromatosis and the efforts the Children's Tumor Foundation is making to find a cure. Spread the word in your community and inspire others to join in the fight.
