PLEASE HELP ME raise money for research and A CURE for Neurofibromatosis (NF)!
NF is a genetic disorder that disturbs cell growth in your nervous system, causing tumors to form on nerve tissue. These tumors may develop anywhere in your nervous system, including in your brain, spinal cord and nerves. I will again be running thru the streets of Atlanta IN MY UNDERWEAR in the COLD to support my young hero friend, Jack Burke. When I first met Jack I had never heard of NF. It affects 1 in 3000 kids.....over 2,000,000 people a year.....yet it is virtually unknown which means research for a cure is severely underfunded.
Having known Jack for over three years now, the fight against NF is PERSONAL! Prior to last year's run, Jack had to undergo brain stem surgery due to complications associated with NF. This year Jack's condition is stable but there are so many others who are not. And Jack's army fights in honor of EVERYONE who suffers from NF!!
Please donate money, share my link on social media , and / or run in your underwear yourself and create a CureNFwJack team in your city! All actions toward awareness, research, and a cure are abundantly appreciated.
**In loving memory of Drew Leathers who lost his NF battle in 2015**
So my friend Mic can run in her underwear for a good cause
Happy Birthday lovely lady! Hope you have a great day running in your undies. Love Anne & Matt
Go Onians! Love, Bev and Tim
Your efforts to support this cause are so admirable! I hope this donation, from both my mother and me, can lend a small part in helping to find a cure.
Good work Michelle, I hope it's warm on Saturday!
Running for such a great cause. I hope the weather is nice for this run.
