FARE Walk Tampa

The FAREwell to Food Allergies walk was last Saturday and I'm so grateful to our family and friends who supported us and so happy we participated!
It felt great to participate and raise money for FARE an organization that has been an invaluable resource for us since we found out about Cody's food allergies.

They also do great research and government advocacy work. Just yesterday President Obama signed the School Access to Emergency Epinephrine Act into law. The hard work of FARE and others made this happen.

For me, it was nice to be around people like us who understand food allergies. It was so much fun to watch Cody run around and play around other kids. It was one of the only times I felt like I did not have to worry about him coming back to me with hives on his hands from touching something that another kid touched, or another kid running around with a peanut butter sandwich which always seems to happen at playgrounds these days.

Cody was happy because he got to see a fire truck up close! We all had a great time and look forward to next year's walk.
