Children's Tumour Foundation of Australia

Join The Penguin Army


NF Heroes show us what brave looks like. They show us that courage is earned, that the challenges we face shape who we are as people and that community has the power to not just lift our spirits, but help them to soar. 

Why should you take the challenge?

While NF is typically associated with the development of tumours – which sometimes challenge a person’s ability to live without restrictions – people with NF can face additional hurdles including bone and spinal abnormalities which limit movement and cause debilitating pain.  

In some cases, the difficult decision to amputate the affected region is sometimes made. 

But that does not stop them from going out there and giving it a go, adapting and finding their passion and purpose again. What challenge could you take on that pushes you physically? 

Please note, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many challenge events around Australia are being cancelled or rescheduled - especially those that fall in the first half of the 2020 calendar year.
