The walk is a family friendly event that is taking place in more than 60 communities nationwide to fund food allergy education, advocacy, awareness, and research.
“A food allergy reaction sends someone to the emergency room every three minutes. Sadly, kids with food allergies know that one bite of the wrong food could have dangerous consequences, including anaphylaxis, a potentially deadly reaction. But it does not have to be that way. We are making great progress in developing life-saving treatments and programs,” said John L. Lehr, CEO of FARE. “Thanks to our generous sponsors and dedicated supporters, the day will come when we say FAREwell to food allergies.”
Participants can sign up to walk individually or as part of a team. Sponsorship opportunities are still available, ena-bling businesses to show their support for families who are living with food allergies from day to day.
