YOU’RE INVITED: Club NF Heads to FuNFest!
August 24, 2016
The Washington University NF Center, in collaboration with the St. Louis Children’s Hospital Foundation, is excited to announce our September 2016 Club NF event – Club NF Goes to FuNFest!
Please join us on Saturday, September 10th, at the Walk Family’s 6th annual FuNFest, which will also include Club NF. FuNFest is an annual fundraiser sponsored by the Walk family at Gatch Lake — near Vandalia, Illinois. FuNFest includes games, bounce houses, face painting, a silent auction and a bake sale, along with the infamous Cow Patty Bingo! Food and drinks are available for purchase.
All proceeds from the event are donated to St. Louis Children’s Hospital Foundation/Washington University NF Center. To help support this exciting event, Club NF will travel to FuNFest.
If your family would like to ride a free charter bus from the Washington University Danforth Campus (leaving campus at 9:30 a.m. and returning to campus at about 5:30 p.m.), please contact Kirsten Brouillet no later than September 8, 2016.
Club NF is the Washington University NF Center’s free, play-based therapy program for school-aged children (K – 8th grade) with NF1 and their families. St. Louis Children’s Hospital therapists work directly with the children in small groups to accomplish a variety of physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech and language therapy goals in a real life, social setting. By strengthening underdeveloped skills alongside siblings and peers, these children are set up for future success in the home, classroom and community. The events are held six Saturday mornings a year at various locations and businesses in the St. Louis area, offering a variety of activities throughout the calendar year to meet the needs of all families affected by NF1. This event is made possible by generous funding from the St. Louis Children’s Hospital Foundation,
