Presented by Mylan, the Walk is a family-friendly event to fund food allergy research, education, advocacy and awareness to the condition that, according to the organization’s website, scientists estimate affects as many as 15 million Americans, including about 5.9 million children.
Similar Walks are being held across the country.
Participants who raise $100 or more receive the official Walk Day T-shirt, as will all registered children walking the event. FARE’s fundraising goal is $55,000.
Registration and check-in is from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. A ceremony precedes the race.
