SPF Celebrate Rare Disease Day 2016 with the NBA

With Rare Disease Day coming up, we are excited to bring you an exciting opportunity: SPF, the NBA and NORD are teaming up to celebrate Rare Disease Day 2016 across the country, from Boston to Sacramento!

This means that you have the opportunity to attend the NBA games with free or discounted tickets. Plus, two teams have openings for rare kids to take center court with the NBA players during the National Anthem. You might remember from last year that the Utah Jazz became the first NBA team to show this type of support for Rare Disease Day. We are excited to build on that momentum to help raise awareness and also provide you a chance to relax, celebrate, and make memories together.

Details are below. Please note, all tickets are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Here’s to making this the best Rare Disease Day yet!
