Children's Tumor Foundation

Why run for us?

The Children's Tumor Foundation is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to funding and driving innovative research that will result in effective treatments for the millions of people worldwide living with neurofibromatosis (NF), a genetic disease that causes tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body.

When you participate as an NF Endurance athlete, you are funding research to help better the lives of the millions living with NF. Thanks to the generosity and hard work of donors and supporters like you, we have seen incredible advances in NF research, and tremendous growth in our Foundation’s programs for NF patients.


What support you will receive from us

As an NF Endurance athlete, you receive:

  • guaranteed race entry into 2023 BMW BERLIN-MARATHON
  • a custom NF Endurance training shirt or singlet
  • personal fundraising webpage plus staff support
  • exclusive event weekend activities
  • inspiration and motivation from an NF Hero
  • confidence that you’re improving the lives of those living with NF around the world
