Come have fun with us at the 4th annual Putnam NF Walk! 
We're more than just a walk in the park! This awesome event celebrates the brave NF Heroes who live with neurofibromatosis, and raises funds for critical NF research. This is more than just a walk; it's a day of family, inspiration, and so much fun!


Walk Wednesdays are flash fundraising contests that allow you earn incentives in the weeks leading up to the walk. These incentives will be in addition to those listed here but are secret until they are announced for the contest.

Please observe these rules to play along:
1. Contests will be announced only on the walk Facebook page so be sure to RSVP. You are welcome to share the daily fundraising goal however you'd like but CTF will only announce it on Facebook.
2. Contests will be announced at noon local time and end at 11:59 p.m. local time. 
3. Only donations that come in online will be count for your daily goal.
4. You MUST email me at 
kpoirier@ctf.org by 11:59 p.m. on the Walk Wednesday to be eligible. If you aren't sure if you raised enough, still email me! I'll only be checking totals of people email me. 

We have some unique incentives planned so have fun and don't be afraid to get creative!*

*Looking for creative ways to flash fundraise? Here are some ideas to get you started:

1. Make a facebook post that that anyone who donates $24 online gets to write a facebook status for you that you'll leave up for $24 hours. A $48 donation will get them 2 days!
2. Create "I'll mow your lawn one-time" coupons and offer to send/give one to the first 3 that donates $50 to you.
3. Send an email on a Tuesday before a WW asking your friends to pack a lunch for the next day and donate an amount equal to what they were planning on spending to go out to lunch. Follow up at lunch time.
4. Offer to write the name and a message the person chooses on your walk-day shirt in exchange for a $30 donation one day.

One in three thousand people are living with 
neurofibromatosis (NF), a genetic disorder that can cause tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body. NF can lead to blindness, bone abnormalities, cancer, deafness, disfigurement, learning disabilities, and disabling pain. Currently there is no cure and no effective treatments for NF, but we’re walking to change that.
