Welcome to our Virtual Challenge Hub!

Community has always been at the heart of what we do at Nerve Tumours UK and we certainly aren't about to change that now!

Welcome to our new Virtual Fundraising Hub; Your Inspiration Station! Designed to keep you entertained and feeling connected.

From our Shine A Light Marathon to a variety of activity challenges, and more ideas yet to be added, we believe we’ve got something for everyone to help break the boredom and keep you feeling positive! Join their ranks and pick an event from any the events in our calendar – or, find an event that you like the sound of, register and create yourself a fundraising page.

Run, jog or walk our Virtual Shine A Light Marathon. Challenge yourself and raise awareness for the NF community by running as the ancient Greek Philippides did from Marathon to Athens - Shining A Light on neurofibromatosis along the way! 

You can register & start your race any time in May – the where and the when is up to you! Run 26 miles over 26 days at a time that suits you!

Why not join our Egg Challenge and turn into an Egg for Nerve Tumours UK whilst in isolation.

As you can't go to the hairdressers or barbers due to isolation we are asking you to join our community and shave your head for charity. 

All you need to do is set up a fundraiser and send us a before and after picture or video! 

If you're not feeling up to becoming a full egg, you can still take part by simply cutting your hair at home and ask potential donors to contribute the amount they would normally spend on a hair cut!

If you have a favourite book, comic, poem or short story and want to share it - why not join Emily Owen's Reading Club? 

Emily invites you to join her reading club for World NF2 Day on the 22nd May.

If you have a love of reading and want to share this love with the NF community then this is the perfect opportunity for you! 

Climb Everest

A 12 week challenge perfect for isolation.  Challengers complete a climb equivalent to Mount Everest (8,848m) either out and about on their daily exercise, climbing the stairs indoors, or a combination of the two!
