Unveiling Your Action-Packed Roadmap to May’s NF Awareness Month

We proudly present your “Map To May.” Join us as we lay out the roadmap in preparation for this year’s NF Awareness Month.


Shine a Light on NF is a grassroots initiative that brings NF awareness into the community by lighting up homes, buildings, bridges, and monuments in blue and green throughout the month of May or on May 17 (World NF Awareness Day). With your help, a landmark in your town can Shine a Light on NF this May! Click below to download your toolkit to get started and view a list of participating locations.
