X Strides 2023

Stride Your Way during July – Fragile X Awareness Month!

What do we mean by “stride your way”? Striding means taking purposeful steps toward a specific goal. In this case, our common goal is raising awareness and funds in support of Fragile X families.

Thank you to the 800+ participants and donors who participated in X Strides 2023! Fragile X knows no racial or economic bounds, and because of you, the NFXF can further our mission to serve the entire Fragile X community to live their best lives by providing the knowledge, resources and tools until, and even after, more effective treatments and a cure are achieved.

Together, We’re Stronger!
