Hundreds of people converged on Westchester, N.Y., this weekend to participate in a Food Allergy Research and Education (FARE) Walk to support food allergy awareness and research. The walk raised about $300,000 for research.

Local food allergy sufferers included children walking in support of FARE. Aaron Weinback, 8, is allergic to many things including eggs, nuts and mustard. Sam Posner, 11, and his family walked in support. Posner has also started a project to raise awareness in his school.

Dr. Hugh Sampson, Chair of the FARE Advisory Board said, "It is important to get people to understand food allergies are not just a few hives, it is serious and a reaction can cause death."

The two-mile walk ended with activities and food centered around family fun and education about food allergies. More information can be found at FoodAllergyWalk.org.
