WHAT IS THE NF HERO CHALLENGE ALL ABOUT?
Everyday, children and adults with NF fight a formidable foe. NF attacks their body from the inside out - without warning and without remorse. Our NF Heroes are the people who live their lives in the shadow of this disorder, but remain positive and strong despite the litany of specialist appointments, surgeries and potential for learning difficulties.
They show us what brave looks like. They show us that courage is earned, that the challenges we face shape who we are as people and that community has the power to not just lift our spirits, but help them to soar.
The NF Hero Challenge is both an excuse and an opportunity to take on something physically demanding, face a legitimate fear or give up something of value during the month of August. Why? To shine a light on the hundreds of little things our NF Heroes do every day that shows their strength and determination.
