Volunteer or Become a Sponsor!

Volunteer:   Any little bit helps the Walk to run smoothly and it is fun to volunteer and walk!  The day of the Walk needs approximately 50-60 volunteers. 

The more people who help, the further we can spread the word!  FARE is looking for volunteers to assist with next year's FARE Walk in the Triangle area for 2014.  Please contact them if you are interested.





2012 Triangle FAAN Walk for Food Allergy


The fourth annual FAAN Walk for Food Allergies in the Triangle Area of NC was yet another wonderful event!   Like previous years, there was a fun silent auction, mascots, games, crafts, and a beautiful location for a walk!  Not even the rainy weather could keep hundreds of people from coming together to raise food allergy awareness and $40,000 toward education and a cure!  THANK YOU to all who participated, donated, volunteered and to all the sponsors and the FAAN Walk Committee!

The most important step is getting registered to walk and raise money to support FAAN’s mission to raise public awareness, to provide advocacy and education, and to advance research on behalf of all those affected by food allergies and anaphylaxis.  This year, FAAN has provided fun incentive prizes as walkers reach donation levels starting at $250.  THANK YOU to all that donated to the virtual Team NC FACES!

On Saturday, October 23, 2010, the 2nd annual "FAAN Walk for Food Allergy: Moving Toward a Cure" took place at 10:00 am (registration opened at 9:00 am with pre-walk ceremonies beginning around 9:30 am) at Bond Park, 801 High House Rd., in Cary, NC.

Thank you to all who participated and helped this year's FAAN Walk continue to grow and exceed last year with number of participants, Walk teams, and donations raised!  Thanks to everyone's efforts, over $35,000 was raised!


As participants finished the walk this year, they had the opportunity to participate in Halloween crafts and games such as Halloween theme tattoos, ring toss, bean bag toss, and coin toss, and win fun prizes! Many children wore their halloween costumes for the duration of the walk and post-walk festivities.  Enjoy some fun pictures from this walk!
