Forward Strides 4NF Committee Fundraises for the NF Center
February 22, 2019
The Forward Strides 4NF committee visited the Washington University NF Center to present a $19,000. 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). Each year the event has had over 200 registered walkers, with more than 30 volunteers. Entertainment at the event included a bounce house, bubble bus, face painting, food and beverages donated from local restaurants, as well as sports mascots to cheer participants at the finish line. Additionally, a raffle, which included over 120 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.
