Ask any one of the thousands who have participated in one of the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network’s Walk for Food Allergy events throughout the country why they walk, and their answer is simple: because they know or love someone with food allergies. They walk because they want raise funds to help FAAN further its mission to educate the public and find a cure.

This month kicks off the height of FAAN’s Walk for Food Allergy season, with 41 events scheduled from coast to coast. With published studies pointing to an epidemic-level of food allergy prevalence, it is critical to continue to raise awareness of this potentially life-threatening medical condition that affects roughly two children in every classroom today.

Walk for Food Allergy events, which have raised more than $14 million for education, research, advocacy, and awareness programs since 2004, bring together families, educators, healthcare professionals, and corporate partners committed to a common cause for a day of fun and camaraderie. Training materials for schools and restaurants, clinical studies such as oral immunotherapy, and community outreach grants are just a few of the programs that have been funded as a result of FAAN’s Walk for Food Allergy. FAAN has set a goal to raise at least $2.4 million through its Walks in 2012.

Why We Walk

  • We walk to fund food allergy awareness, advocacy, education, and research programs.
  • We walk to provide understanding, hope, and an opportunity for those affected by food allergies to network.
  • We walk to save a life!
