Are you walking in a FARE Food Allergy Walk near you? This is something my family and I have participated in every year…almost since the walk’s institution. It is truly a fantastic family event that does not cost for you to participate in (although fundraising is encouraged and welcome).
Here are just some of the fun and exciting events related to the Houston FARE Food Allergy Walk. Read all about it and then COME BE A PART OF IT for FREE by joining The Food Allergy Mom team!
1) Houston FARE Walk for Food Allergy. Our annual Houston FARE Walk for Food Allergy will be on Sat., Oct. 22, 2016 at Minute Maid Park – Diamond Lot. This family friendly 1-mile Walk will include these FUN activities: a DJ, a rock climbing wall, face painting, a gaming truck, a photo booth, access to Minute Maid Park’s Squeeze Play Area, 20+ vendor booths, 11 Poke Stops (NEW) & Pokemon Lures (NEW) set along the walk route, a Silly-String-Your-Allergist station (NEW) and so much more! Registration is FREE (www.foodallergywalk.org/Houston2016). We also have a Get-Your-Team-Name on our official Walk shirt contest going on right now. Teams will be recognized on our Houston shirt at different team levels based on the amount raised by our deadline: Silver Level Team ($1K), Gold Level Team ($2,500), Platinum Level Team ($5K), & Presenting Team ($10K). Our original deadline was this Fri, Sept 16th but it has been extended to next Wed, Sept 21 to allow our teams this weekend to get those fundraising numbers up!
