    We hope you will join us and the rest of the food allergy community in Charlotte this year at the Food Allergy Heroes Walk!  This year’s walk will be an amazing and uplifting event, dedicated to Charlotte’s everyday food allergy heroes: from our food allergy stars who exemplify strength and courage, to our doctors on the front lines of cutting edge treatments, to our amazing circle of family, friends, neighbors, businesses and teachers who keep our families safe all year round.

    If you’ve been wanting to do something bold and important—something that truly showcases the hero that you are, this is your year.  Join us on Saturday, October 21 at Freedom Park for the FARE Food Allergy Heroes Walk.

    There will be several amazing activities planned, including performances by Kyle Dine and our own ImPAKt teens.  Kyle and the ImPAKt crew have been practicing for their performances.  The island at Freedom Park is going to be called ImPAKt Island especially dedicated to our teens.  We’ll have crafts, a photo booth, cornhole games, a teal costume contest and more!
