April 23 - September 30, 2020

Are you looking for a way to get involved with the Foundation and create meaningful change despite a busy schedule?

The Read-a-thon fundraiser was launched this spring to help families by engaging kids through reading during social isolation. Reading is a great activity during our current situation, allowing us to delve into stories about far away places and connect with heroic characters. But reading isn't just for kids! Why not tackle your "to-read list" while contributing to a great cause? Adults are more than welcome to contribute in our Read-a-thon.

The Read-a-thon fundraiser is easy to do on your own, as a family, or for a class project.

When you register for the event you will be prompted to set up a fundraising page. Once you determine your reading goal, (for example, reading 30 minutes daily, 10 pages a day, a book a week, etc.) you can share it along with the link to your fundraising page with your friends and family. This will make them aware of your initiative and makes it easy for them to support you.

Your generosity helps the Foundation continue to improve the lives of individuals and families affected by NF in present and future challenging times. Every penny makes a difference.

You can keep track of the books you read by downloading the "Reading log document" to fill out to share with your supporters. All participants will receive a finisher’s certificate.

Ready, set, READ!
