Choose Your Own Challenge with NF Endurance

By March 25, 2021December 4th, 2023Awareness, NF Endurance, Ways to Give

Climb a mountain, tackle an obstacle course race, go for an epic hike – the challenge is up to you! Sign up with NF Endurance and pick the adventure of your choice. Then make your challenge more meaningful by fundraising for the Children's Tumor Foundation, supporting our mission to fund research to end NF.

Like Emma, whose goal to hike a total of 250 miles, began on her 25th birthday on January 31, and ended on the last day of NF Awareness Month on May 31, 2020.

“It has not been easy, especially with quarantine, but it's certainly been a good lesson in endurance and gratitude. Every time I feel like quitting, I remember that NF patients don't have a choice. They have to endure tough treatments, countless tests, and a lifetime of challenges. The least I can do for them is hike a few miles to raise awareness!”


Or Nicole, whose goal was completing the Spartan Trifecta, three Spartan races in one year: the Sprint, the Super, and the Ultra. She rallied her friends to join Team Maddox, named in honor of her son who lives with NF, and train and race alongside her. 

“When I train I keep one thing at the front of my mind: I need to make a difference for Maddox. I need to raise awareness of NF so that things will get better for him and the millions suffering from that nasty condition. I need to raise money to help fund critical research to find an effective treatment and hopefully one day, a cure. I believe in this cause. I'm proud to be involved with the Children's Tumor Foundation. They are an incredible charity and are leading the research in the field of NF.”

Or like Dave, who celebrated his 50th birthday by running the JFK 50 Mile Ultramarathon in Maryland, in honor of his daughters Genna and Rose. 



Or like our Crossfit community from across the country and around the world, who came together virtually to participate in Crossfit for a Cure, completing a special WOD for World NF Day for all NF Heroes.  




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! Sign up at and pick the adventure of your choice.
