Welcome to the start of our 2011 season!
As always, we get the NF Endurance team out and running at the Get in Gear, which is this Saturday, April 30th.
If you are registered for this event, we would love to get a team picture before the races get started. We will be meeting at the bandshell at 8:40am, before the start of the 10K. If you do not have gear to wear, and would like to support the NF Endurance team that day as we raise awareness for Neurofibromatosis(NF), please email Murray McCartan at

Following the Get in Gear, on Sunday, May 1, is the Iron Man bike ride. Again, if you are registered for this event, and would like to wear gear, please email Murray. The NF Endurance team will have a table at this event, so please stop by and get some information about our group and the awareness we raise for NF.

Thank you for supporting the NF Endurance team. Please check in during the summer for updates on events.

Happy New Year!

The NF Endurance team is getting ready to kick off a new season. We first want to say thank you to everyone that came out in 2010 and helped us have one of our most successful seasons yet. We are so grateful to everyone that wore their bright yellow singlets at their events to raise awareness for NF, and to everyone that helped us raise money for research. Our MN teams raised over $50,000 last year! Thank you to everyone that helped make that possible.

There are some events coming up and registration for summer events that are open or will be open in the next month.

We will be at the Lifetime fitness indoor triathlon on March 6 in Fridley. Please email the NF Endurance team if you are interested in this event.

The Get in Gear is always a big event for the NF Endurance team. Registration is now open, and if you register by January 31st the cost is $20 for the 10K and 5K.

Minnetonka Triathlon registration is now open and will close soon.

YWCA Women's Triathlon will open registration on Feb. 2. This event will be posted as a national event for the NF Endurance team.

There will also be many volunteer opportunities this year. If volunteering is something you would like to do, please email us. This is also a great opportunity for our group to raise money for research.

We have a lot of fun events that we will be at this year. We look forward to seeing a lot of bright yellow there!

Thank you for supporting the NF Endurance team! We can't find a cure with out you!
