UTAH FAAN Walk is October 8th!

Saturday, October 8th at Wheeler Historic Farm, South Lawn 6351 South 900 East, Salt Lake City is the Annual FAAN Walk.  Registration starts at 11:00 am and the Walk begins at noon. 

The FAAN Walk is an awesome opportunity to help raise money for food allergy research and educational programs and to help raise community awareness...not to mention an exciting event to bring the family and friends to where everyone 'gets it' and the kids can play with no worries and make food allergy friends! There are lots of exciting things taking place on Walk day for everyone to participate in...Munchkin Radio will be there rockin' out, face painting, games, race cars, and lots more! 
We know many of our patients participate in this walk and we wish them all luck. Here is some more information about this from there website and click below for more info.

Because of the money we raised last year at the FAAN Walk, UFAN was able to apply for a community grant which helped fund the Utah Food Allergy Conference in June and we nominated a Utah school nurse who sits on the state board to attend the National Association of School Nurses Conference where she went to a special food allergy presentation by FAAN and brought the information back to other nurses in the state. 

UFAN would like to encourage everyone to create a team, tell your friends/family/neighbors/co-workers, raise as much money as you and your team members can, and then celebrate with us all at the Walk on Saturday October 8th!! You can also register as a 'virtual walker' to donate and fund raise without even being there!  

We need each one of you to make this year a success and we hope to be able to bring some of the money raised back to Utah to directly benefit you!
