Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) works on behalf of the 15 million Americans with food allergies. Food allergies affect 1 in 13 children in the United States. FARE works to support research and educate the community to create a safe environment for all food allergy sufferers. FARE also works with organizations worldwide to battle this growing epidemic.
FARE Walk for Food Allergy for 2013 is well under way but there are still many coming up across the country and you can do your bit to help FARE say ‘FARE well to Food Allergies’. I plan to take part in 2 walk this year – yes! One in my home state of NJ and other Las Vegas.
Why should you do it?
Well as the FARE website puts it…
‘40% of children with food allergies have already experienced a severe or life-threatening reaction, such as anaphylaxis.’
Walk for them…
‘Scientists estimate that as many 15 million Americans are living with food allergies, including about 5.9 million children.’
Walk for them…
And, the returns you get is a healthier you. Not a bad bargain at all :-)
Some walks are right around the corner so put on your walking shoes and head out for a fun and meaningful summer outing…
