Fragile X Family & Friends Picnic

Each year, the NCFXF Board hosts the annual Family & Friends Picnic - a day to reunite and gather with our NC Fragile X community! The 2023 event was held in October on scenic and peaceful Lake Macintosh in Burlington, NC welcoming friendly faces, both familiar and new. The picnic was bigger and better with a catered BBQ lunch (with vegetarian and kid-friendly options) and the all new NCFXF Olympic Games!

Our 2023 NCFXF Picnic was a HUGE success!! Thank you to the amazing efforts of all who organized this wonderful event, full of games, resources and connection with members of the Fragile X community.
