The event, to be held in 44 cities across the country as well as online to support FARE(the Food Allergy & Research Education), increases awareness about food allergies and raises money for research, education, and advocacy.
An estimated 15 million Americans, including 3 million children, have a food allergy - that’s 1 in 13. Food allergies are a potentially life-threatening medical condition, and the CDC reports that food allergies result in over 300,000 ambulatory-care visits a year among children.
Registration for FARE’s Walk for Food Allergy is now open at www.foodallergywalk.org. Individuals, families, community groups, and anyone else wishing to raise funds for FARE are encouraged to register and attend this family-friendly event.
Registration is free.
