A walk scheduled for tomorrow will raise funds and awareness for local patients living with neurofibromatosis.
The Jacksonville NF Walk will take place at the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens Saturday, Sept. 14.
Patty-Jean Dye, volunteer and asst. chairperson for the program, said it’s an excellent chance for anyone to come and enjoy the zoo while contributing to a worthy cause.
Neurofibromatosis (NF) is a common, yet relatively unknown genetic disorder that occurs in 1 out of every 3,000 births and causes tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body.
