The first annual Atlanta NF Walk will be Sunday, Oct. 6 to help raise money for Neurofibromatosis research. Participants will walk the 1.68 mile route and then be able to enjoy music, a raffle, games, food and more. The public is invited, as are on-leash dogs. It takes place at Piedmont Park, 400 Park Drive, Atlanta 30306. Check-in is at 11 a.m., with the walk starting at noon. The goal is to raise funds for the Children’s Tumor Foundation. The foundation’s mission is to end neurofibromatosis (NF) through research.NF is a common, yet under-recognized, genetic disorder that causes tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body. The disorder can lead to blindness, bone abnormalities, cancer, deafness, disfigurement, learning disabilities and excruciating and disabling pain. It affects one in every 3,000 people.
