Kansas City NF Walk


Saturday, September 23, 2017 - 09:00


Penguin Park, 4101 NE Vivion Rd. KC, MO.

Description: Hello, The Children’s Tumor Foundation is excited to announce that the Kansas City NF Walk will be held on Saturday, September 23, 2017. I am reaching out with the hope that you can support this walk and contribute to its success. Your support will help fund critical research for neurofibromatosis (NF). NF is a genetic disorder that causes tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body. This disorder can lead to blindness, bone abnormalities, cancer, deafness, disfigurement, learning disabilities, and excruciating and disabling pain. NF affects one in every 3,000 people, more than cystic fibrosis, Duchenne muscular dystrophy, and Huntington’s disease combined. NF research is also shedding new light on several forms of cancer, brain tumors, bone abnormalities, and learning disabilities, ultimately benefiting the broader community. The Children’s Tumor Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that prides itself on its 4-Star Charity Navigator rating, spending 82% of its revenue on research and programs. We have also received accreditation from the Better Business Bureau as part of the Wise Giving Alliance.Since its inception in 1978, the Foundation has grown into the largest non-government funder of neurofibromatosis (NF) research in the world. Our mission is to drive research, expand knowledge and advance care for the NF community. In addition to being a driving force behind NF research, the Children’s Tumor Foundation also supports the NF Clinic Network, which sees over 10,000 patients in 50 clinics throughout the United States. The Children's Tumor Foundation's NF Walk Program is a fundraising initiative to support NF research, raise awareness and provide support for individuals with NF and their families. Our NF Walks are a fun and engaging way to support those living with NF. They are open to all ages, engage entire communities, include not only walks, but also 5ks and kids fun runs, and offer friendship and hope for those living with NF. NF Walks are family and community events, attracting motivated individuals from all walks of life. Our events are seeking tremendous growth, and forming partnerships will result in a win/win, benefiting your business as well as a worthy cause. In 2017 we plan to raise $2 million through NF Walks across the United States. We are offering sponsorships at various levels in an effort to involve as many businesses as possible. In return, we offer benefits at each level. Please review the attached sponsorship levels to determine which is most appropriate for your organization. I am happy to discuss these opportunities with you personally. If you are able to sponsor the Kansas City NF Walk, or help in any way, please contact me at your earliest convenience to coordinate further. We hope you will join us in supporting our Kansas City NF Walk. Thank you for your time and consideration. Sincerely, Hannah Duby Kansas City NF Walk Director 816-718-2601 Submitted by: Hannah Duby, KC NF Walk Director Children's Tumor Foundation
