NAF Walk n’ Roll


For too long over 150,000 Americans and their families have suffered from the devastating effects of Ataxia. But with your participation the 2006 Walk n’ Roll, we can collectively bring the world one giant step closer to a cure and help the National Ataxia Foundation put an end to Ataxia.


More then just a fundraising event, the NAF Walk n’ Roll is a celebration for an entire community. The donations received fund countless programs, services and research, but the event itself creates a hope-filled and fun atmosphere for everyone affected by ataxia while generating a greater awareness of ataxia in the public at large. Families are drawn closer together, co-workers are united for the greater good, and people gain a better understanding of what ataxia is and how they can help.


Plan you own Walk n’ Roll Event

  1. Contact you support group members, school, youth group, co-workers or neighborhood friends to set a time and place.
  2. Tell the National Ataxia Foundation about you event then complete and return the fundraising application form.
  3. Request Awareness materials to give away and sell from the National Ataxia Foundation. Request any additional assistance from NAF including flyers for your event and registration forms to send to active members in the event area and for you to distribute.
