Thank you for your support in the Food Allergy Walk!

Posted By Alison On Sep 17, 2009 @ In Past Events,SF Bay Area | 2 Comments

The Food Allergy Walk in San Francisco was a success! About 500 people walked in Golden Gate Park in the sprinkling rain to raise awareness and to raise money for FAAN. Overall the event so far has raised about $65,000, with Team Sure Foods Living raising over $3,500!

Hooray for the Team Sure Foods Living walkers!

  • The Jang family:

  • My family:

    grandparents:
    Mike and Lynn Davis

It was a beautiful walk despite the rain, and it was great to talk with other parents of allergic children and for the kids to meet other kids with food allergies.

This year we all got to practice using the EpiPen on an orange. My daughter (5 years old) was scared at first, but then wanted to do it again, all by herself. She felt a lot better about the whole thing after that!

I would like to thank everyone who walked or donated. If you forgot, you can still donate… or there is always next year.

Thank you for the donations to Team Sure Foods Living!
