The 4th Annual Westchester FARE Walk for Food Allergy will take place at Glen Island Park in New Rochelle on September 28, 2013. Check-in and activities begin at 1:00 pm. The Walk ceremony starts at 2:00 pm. With more than 60 U.S. locations this year, the FARE Walk for Food Allergy raises money for food allergy research, awareness, advocacy, and education. This potentially life-threatening disease affects up to 15 million Americans, including 1 in every 13 US children – roughly two in every classroom. Last year the Westchester Walk had over 1500 walkers, who raised more than $200,000 for the cause.
This year the Walk, which includes a family fun day loaded with activities and giveaways, welcomes Lee Goldberg, from WABC-TV, as Honorary Chair and Dr. Jennifer Kim, from Mount Sinai Hospital, as Honorary Medical Chair. Activities will include:
DJ ~ soccer ~ gaga ~ bouncy castles ~ face painting
carnival games ~ arts and crafts ~ obstacle course
giveaways from sponsors ~ and much more
It is a fun family event for all—those with and without allergies!
