About the Hometown Heroes Community Walk

FARE’s Hometown Heroes Community Walk is a fun and festive walk event that you can organize in your hometown to support food allergy research, education, advocacy and awareness. It is also an opportunity for all families affected by food allergies to connect with each other, unite in a welcoming space, and celebrate their potential as change makers for better outcomes for their children and loved ones.

Hometown Heroes is more than just a fundraiser: it is an inspirational, life-changing experience which provides hope for better treatments and a cure for the 32 million Americans with food allergies. Through this event, you will join others in your community and can share your own personal story and connection with food allergies. You will find comfort and support by connecting with others in your own hometown.

Fundraising fuels research. Fundraising fuels education. Fundraising fuels programs and support. Fundraising is the vehicle of impact that will make this world a safer place for everyone affected by food allergies. It is through our fundraising efforts and our strength as a community that we will create the world in which we want to live.

It truly takes a village of everyday heroes to keep our kids safe. We hope you join us in a Hometown Heroes Community Walk.
