Walking for Food Allergies

I’ve written about my son’s peanut allergy several times before.  It’s obviously a cause near and dear to my heart.  When a friend asked if I wanted to do a 5k sponsored by FAAN (Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network), I thought it was a great idea.  FAAN’s mission is to raise public awareness, provide advocacy and education, and to advance research on behalf of all those affected by food allergies and anaphylaxis.

So I signed up, and I have a donation page if anyone would be interested in helping me reach my goal (I’m almost halfway there!)  The 5k is this Saturday and I’m looking forward to participating in my first one :)

I happen to be a runner, and it always makes me feel a little better when I can do a race for a good cause. Best of luck with the 5k and raising awareness for a good cause!
