Hey guys! Just wanted to remind everyone that FAAN’s Walks for Food Allergy are taking place all over the country right now. They are intended to raise money and awareness for food allergy research and programming. I also think there’s great value in showing food allergic kids just how many families in their community deal with this increasingly prevalent issue. Giving kids a sense of commonality with their peers in this way may be very eye-opening. And, walking to help find answers for an issue they likely face several times a day is empowering to food allergic kids who may sometimes feel helpless to their allergy or allergies.
This weekend (Sept. 22- 23, 2012), there are walks in:
- Northern Virginia
- Austin, Texas
- Lansing, Michigan
- Baltimore, Maryland
- Boston, Massachusetts
- Columbus, Ohio
….and many more locations with dates upcoming. Check out FAAN’s Walk Page for more information.
I’m off to grab my sneakers. Hope to see you on the walk!
