Help make strides in NF RESEARCH

We're racing towards a better future for everyone impacted by neurofibromatosis (NF), a rare and complex genetic condition that causes tumours to form in the body.  NF impacts 13,000 people across Australia. There is no cure and treatment options are limited.

Make a move this May and step up for NF. It’s FREE to register and you can participate from anywhere in Australia. All it takes is what you've got - step, stride or ride a distance of your choice and collect donations and rewards along the way.

Proceeds from funds raised through Steps Towards a Cure will be invested into life-changing NF research.

Stepping up for the Children’s Tumour Foundation

The Children’s Tumour Foundation is the only dedicated support service for those impacted by neurofibromatosis (NF), a rare and complex genetic condition that causes tumours to form on nerves in the body, including the brain and spine.

Our vision is a life without limitations for everyone impacted by NF in Australia.
