Northern VA Food Allergy Heroes Walk

Team Shah

As many of you know, Niam and Saiya both have severe food allergies.  As a food allergy family, our lives have changed every way possible - every birthday party, every playdate, every meal - is now fraught with danger.  Despite these challenges, we count ourselves lucky that both kids are healthy and happy, and are surrounded by friends and family who love and support them.  Before their diagnoses, we knew very little about food allergies, even though they affect so many people.  Did you know that every three minutes, a food allergy reaction sends someone to the emergency room in the U.S.? A life-altering and potentially life-threatening disease, food allergy affects 15 million Americans.
 
Right now, there is no treatment or cure for food allergy… but there is HOPE.  That’s why we're getting involved with 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.
 
We encourage you to get involved too! Whether its by joining us in the walk, donating, or just simply raising awareness.  
 
Here’s how you can help:
  • JOIN MY TEAM and REGISTER TO WALK using the button at the top of this page, then invite others you know to do the same.
  • DONATE NOW!  We hope to reach our team fundraising goal. Any amount helps!

All donations are in honor of the 15 million Americans with food allergies. Every dollar makes a difference, and when you donate, you help FARE to fund food allergy education programs, advocacy and awareness initiatives, and world-class research.  Here’s the tremendous impact of what your donations can do:

  • $25 - Puts a newly diagnosed patient kit into the hands of 10 families coping with a new diagnosis of a food allergy
  • $50 - Sends “Be A Pal” food allergy education materials to two elementary school classrooms
  • $150 - Supports FARE’s Innovation Tank at Teen Summit, encouraging creativity and entrepreneurship among teens living with food allergies
  • $200 - Enables hundreds of individuals to access a FARE-produced webinar on managing life with a food allergy

 

In every community, every day, you’ll find a circle of heroes keeping all those with food allergies safe.  You are part of our circle.  Together, we can create a better future for all who are affected by food allergies!

Thank you for your support!
