9 - 11 am

Please join us for Omaha’s 2015 FARE Walk for Food Allergy that will take place in Stinson Park! FARE’s mission is to find a cure for food allergies, and to keep individuals with food allergies safe and included. This walk is part of our national Walk Program that reaches out to the food allergy community to raise awareness about food allergies as a serious public health issue, raise funds to support our shared mission, and connect food allergy affected individuals and families in their area. In 2013, FARE raised more than $16 million in our continuing efforts to find a cure for food allergy. Due, in part, to the success in Lincoln last year, $3.6 million of that came from our walk program! With a goal of $9,000 and 23 teams, we turn to you and ask you to register today for the walk! Once you have completed the registration, spread the word to neighbors, families, friends, allergists and colleagues and help us say FAREwell to food allergies! To register and for more information, please visit www.foodallergywalk.org/omaha2015!
