It’s hard to believe that YOU have been helping us raise awareness and research funding for NF2 for 10 years now! Leah was just 7 years old when diagnosed and now she's a Junior in High School.
What started out as a small group of Leah’s family members looking to 'run for a reason' has evolved into 827 runners, 1000 volunteers and hundred's of thousands of dollars raised over the past 10 years for NF2. Our signature green NF2 T-shirts & hoodies have become a staple in downtown Buffalo on Memorial Day weekend, drawing attention to our cause and reaching out to others impacted by Neurofibromatosis. You have helped us make a difference in our vital mission to find effective treatments and ultimately a cure for NF2.
In honor of Leah and the ten years she and her family have spent rising to the daily challenges of NF2, we are increasing our annual campaign goal to $50,000 for 2017!
Help us meet our goal by making a special anniversary donation or sponsoring a Run4Leah team member in the 5K on Saturday, May 27 or Full Marathon or Half Marathon on Sunday, May 28, or in honor of a volunteer!
