What's the Food Allergy Walk? Here's a great description from their site:
The Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network (FAAN) is the world’s leading nonprofit organization in the fight for food allergy awareness, education, and research. Over the past four years, thousands of walkers and volunteers have gathered in communities around the country to build awareness of food allergies and to raise funds to support research and education programs. The FAAN Walk for Food Allergy events have raised $4 million, with an additional $2.5 million forecasted for the 2008 season.To learn more about our team (or to join us!), visit our page on the Food Allergy Walk site.
We walk to find a cure for food allergies for your family member, friend, student, or colleague! We walk to increase awareness of food allergy and the effect it has on a community. We walk to provide understanding, hope, and an opportunity for a child with food allergy to simply be a child. We walk to save a child’s life!
Can't walk with us? How about making a donation to help us meet our goals? You can donate via my personal page and all donations will count towards the team's goal of $2500.
