Summer Splash 2020
June 01, 2020
This Summer we brought back one of our favorite awareness campaigns and fundraising events - Summer Splash! Every participants contributed by cannonballing or diving into a pool, lake or other body of water in support of finding a cure for Nephrotic Syndrome. Thank you to our amazing sponsors including our Big Kahuna Sponsor Leslie's Pool Care.
Although COVID-19 cancelled our in person Camp NSF, we didn't let that stop us from doing fun crafts, games and activities with our amazing campers and counselors. This year we hosted our first virtual camp with patient families from across the United States! We can't wait to see you all in person again for Camp 2021.
B.Hope Day Round 2
July 25, 2020
We filled over 200 Backpacks of Hope with the help of our amazing sponsors and volunteers! At our social distancing backpack stuffing event, small groups of volunteers joined us at CPC in Danville to completely clear out waitlist and provide each child who was waiting with a Backpack of Hope.
Over 100 people joined us for our first EVER Virtual Dinner Party. As a result of COVID-19 and all NSF's in person events being put on hold, Dine Together served as our fundraiser to sponsor 226 Backpacks of Hope, eliminating our waitlist! John and Noelle Micek hosted our event alongside NSF founders Andi and Tucker Callaway. CPC's Tyler Scott led us in a blessing before The Lear Family shared their brave journey with Nephrotic Syndrome.
Over 100 incredible people came out to serve on March 7th, 2020, putting together Backpacks of Hope for 100 young warriors battling Nephrotic Syndrome, lifting up not only 100 tough young fighters, but also their families, moms, dads and brothers and sisters. We are SO grateful to all those who helped...our volunteers, Team NSF, our sponsors, donors, community partners and to those who fight this battle ever day and inspire us to do more.
Thank you to everyone who came out, contributed or donated in support! We could not be more proud to be a part of this amazing community. Together we raised $97,000 to allow The Nephrotic Syndrome Foundation to continue our programs in 2020! Thank you!!
We rode horses, tie-dyed shirts, hiked, stargazed, swam, decorated cookies, zip-lined, did art projects, played air hockey, had campfires and movie nights and tons more. Twenty one patient families attended NSF's first ever TWO night weekend family camp, and by the time we left we were like family.
With your help Game Day 2018 raised $85,000 and brought love and light to this important cause. Thank you all who came out to enjoy this special Sunday at the Ball Park or donated in support.

Gratitude is not a natural ability for many of us, and can be especially hard for those with Nephrotic Syndrome. The Nephrotic Syndrome Foundation partnered with “The Gift of Being Grateful”, to provide the opportunity for young warriors battling Nephrotic Syndrome to create their own Gratitude Box! To kick off this kid-focused session, we heard from Dr. Ryan Lazarus, an international speaker and owner of Lazarus Chiropractic Inc. who shared with us a few words on the importance of gratitude. He and his daughter Cienna, led attendees in a step by step tutorial to customize, decorate and use your own Gratitude Box! A
