Your Impact

When you participate as an NF Endurance athlete, you are funding research to help better the lives of the millions living with neurofibromatosis, our NF Heroes. Thanks to the generosity and hard work of donors and supporters like you, we have seen incredible advances in NF research, and tremendous growth in our Foundation’s programs for NF patients. 

Fundraising Incentives

The Children’s Tumor Foundation appreciates the time and energy our participants put into fundraising to help us end NF. We recognize their efforts through our NF Endurance Fundraising Incentive Program.

Once you reach your fundraising minimum for your event, you are eligible to earn a variety of great prizes!

Adopt-a-Hero Program

Through our Adopt-a-Hero Program, we partner NF Heroes (individuals living with NF) with our NF Endurance athletes to make your CTF experience more meaningful. Our NF Heroes will motivate you throughout your training with emails, letters, photos and videos. They’ll share their story of what it’s like to live with neurofibromatosis.

Do you know an NF Hero? They can join our Adopt-a-Hero program and help inspire our athletes! Email us at nfendurance@ctf.org to learn more or sign up.

Choose Your Own Challenge

Climb a mountain, cycle across the country, skydive, or run/walk in any race not on our NF Endurance team schedule - the challenge is up to you! Simply pick the adventure of your choice, sign up below, and set your fundraising goal (fundraising incentives above still apply).
