Walk for Food Allergies

FAAN Walk

Perhaps you'd like to help raise money for food allergy awareness. Maybe you need some extra exercise this year to help with those new year resolutions. Either way, now is your chance to burn some extra calories for a cause.

The Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network has just posted information for their 2010 Walk for Food Allergy-Moving Towards a Cure. So far $1,039 has been raised and the goal for this year is $2,669,000.

You can get involved by donating to a walker or as a corporate sponsor, or you can sign up and be a walker yourself. Some areas even need local walk organizers. No matter what role, you can make a difference.

The Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network, known as FAAN, is a non profit organization that has been at the forefront of food allergy research, education and awareness. Findings from their supported research studies have helped to pave the way and change federal and state laws as well as improve the lives of those with food allergies in schools and in day to day life.

If you'd like to be involved visit FAAN's website at http://www.foodallergywalk.org
