FARE Walk Committee Forming!!!

Here's more details on the FARE Walk Volunteer Roles for fall 2016...

FARE is gearing up for the 2016 FARE Walk for Food Allergy – Charlotte!

Through your support and generosity, FARE continues to drive the advancement of food allergy research in order to change – and save – lives.  Check out Your Donations at Work in 2015 to see the incredible impact you are making!

We’re currently in the early stages of planning for this year’s Charlotte Walk which will take place this fall (date TBD).  We’re working on building our 2016 Walk Committee and welcome interested individuals to join us.  This is a fun group that works cohesively to plan an amazing day!

Below are roles we would like to have additional support in:

Media & Publicity Volunteer(s):  Lead media relations and identify individuals for the committee who can help FARE gain media exposure in the community.  Distribute FARE produced press releases and media advisories.  Work to set-up radio and television interviews and confirm media attendance at the event, as well as post the event on local calendar listings in newspapers, blog, radio stations, etc.

Recruitment Volunteer(s):  Visit support groups, allergists, and businesses to promote the Walk and help increase the number of walk teams and walker participation.  All committee members can assist in recruitment of teams.

Sponsorship Volunteer(s):  Work with your FARE Walk Manager to identify, contact, and secure corporations and businesses in the community to sponsor the Walk.

Volunteer Recruitment & Management Volunteer(s):  Recruit and manage volunteers for Walk Day.  Provide information prior to the Walk and assign duties.

Day-Of Entertainment Volunteer(s):  Arrange and secure “walk around” entertainment for Walk Day, such as DJ/music, kid’s activities, etc., along with equipment rentals (tables, chairs, tents, bouncy slide, etc.).

If interested in joining the Walk Committee or for more information, please email me at achaney@foodallergy.org.

Stay tuned for many more Walk details and the website opening up soon.  We look forward to a record breaking year!

Thanks for all you do Charlotte!
