Forward Strides 4NF Committee Fundraises for the Washington University NF Center
Recently, the Forward Strides 4NF committee visited the Washington University NF Center to present a $20,000 check. It was the largest yearly fundraising total since their inception.
Forward Strides 4NF is a charity that was started in 2016 by Gina Wilburn to honor her daughter and husband, who both have Neurofibromatosis (NF). This year the committee celebrated their 5th anniversary with a Superhero theme, and hosted over 200 registered walkers, with more than 30 volunteers. Entertainment at the event included an obstacle course slide, music, food and beverages donated from local restaurants, as well as superhero mascots to cheer participants at the finish line. Additionally, both a raffle and silent auction, which included many amazing items, has proven to be a huge attraction every year.
The Washington University NF Center extends its heartfelt gratitude to Gina and the Forward Strides 4 NF committee for their continued support.
