Last Saturday we participated in FAAN’s Walk for Food Allergy in Houston, Texas, for a second year, and boy did we have fun! Walk for Food Allergy: Moving Toward a Cure is being held in more than 50 cities across the nation this year to raise awareness and funds for food allergy research and education programs. This year we are also proud to be a sponsor of FAAN walks in Denver, Long Island, and Chicago. Be sure to stop by our booth if you live in one of these locations or check out FAAN’s 2010 Walk Locations to see if there is one near you.
