Have you ever participated in your local Food Allergy & Anaphylaxsis Network walk? If you have ever wanted to be among countless others personally affected by food allergies, this is the place for you!
The goal of the walk is "to raise public awareness, to provide advocacy and education, and to advance research on behalf of all those affected by food allergies and anaphylaxis."
Last year our family participated family took part and we loved it (despite the fact I was recovering from knee surgery!). This year the local walk will be Saturday, October 3, in Milford. For more information, click here. Food allergy singer, Kyle Dine, will also perform!
If you're not in Detroit, there are still plenty of walks around the country coming up. Check out all the locations here.
