My name is Max, and I'm 13 years old. I like to play hockey, play video games, and play with my dogs. I'm just like any other 13-year-old boy - except for one thing - I am one of 6 million kids in the United States with a food allergy. I'm allergic to peanuts and tree nuts.
This year is a special year for me. This year I will become a Bar Mitzvah, an adult in my community. This means that I am now responsible for my behaviors and my choices, not my parents. It means that I have to be responsible for things like remembering my epinepherine, and reading food labels by myself. I also means that i am responsible for doing mitzvot - or good deeds - to make the world a better place.
For my Bar Mitzvah project, I have decided to raise funs for the FARE Food Allergy Heroes Walk. Will you join me and donate? Or join our team, raise funds, and walk with us?
Right now, there is no treatment or cure for my allergy… but there is HOPE.
That’s why I’m raising funds for FARE to help them fulfill their mission to improve the quality of life and the health of individuals with food allergies, and to provide them hope through the promise of new treatments.
Will you do a Mitzvah - a good deed - and donate?
