FARE Walk for Food Allergy Update

Message from Walk Chair, Jennifer Barrett...

Here is a bit more info on our FARE Walk this year.

We are going to have an awesome Halloween costume party! So everyone come dressed up. I expect we're going to see a lot of super hero costumes on the PARENTS since that is really what we all are anyway. ...
There will be a DJ playing music. He will take requests, we'll need some input from the older kiddos! There will be face painter(s) so if anyone wants to add to their costume the face painters will be at your service!
We are working on having an area for trick or treating, but of course with no treats...and really no tricks either...but hopefully lots of little trinkets and toys that will be relatively age appropriate.
With the time line, we are working on fitting in a costume contest. Did I mention parents should come dressed up too? We still have some more to narrow down with the time line, but this is the basic format so far.
We'll finish up with our FARE Walk awards and the FARE Walk itself.
This should be a really fun morning/afternoon.

The donations are a bit small, but we know that folks are working on the start of school and the end of summer right now. But think about using the on line tools on the walk page to help send blasts to your friends and family. I started loading emails 2 years ago and my past address book has stayed in there so its easy to update. I also use their format but I customize the message for my own needs before I send the email blast. In the end it makes it very easy for my friends to donate on line. I find that most people prefer to donate on line these days.

As we add and finalize more about the walk I will update. Here is the link to the Charlotte walk page. Check it out if you haven't had a chance yet. And please do send me messages if you have any questions about the page or the walk.
