Mission Statement

Each year, for Neurofibromatosis Awareness Month, we host a SCULLY MARATHON to benefit NF, Inc as our way of honoring Gillian Anderson, an active spokesperson for NF, Inc. and herself a member of an NF family, for her wonderful work on The X-Files.

Description

Neurofibromatosis (NF for short) is a genetic disorder of the nervous system that causes tumors to form on the nerves anywhere in the body at any time. It affects all races and both sexes equally. NF is one of the most common genetic disorders in the United States, with one in every 3,000 to 4,000 children born being affected. NF, Inc. is a US organization that is dedicated to providing support and services to individuals and families affected by neurofibromatosis and related disorders, while also working closely with clinical and research professionals who specialize in the treatment of NF; in addition, they have coordinated education, support, clinical and research programs, and promote national, state, and local community involvement. As NF, Inc., is a 501(c)3 organization, donations are fully tax-deductible.
