Supporting KFA Strides for Safe Kids Mall Walk & Expo

Wahoo! I am excited about the upcoming Kids with Food Allergies (KFA) Strides for Safe Kids Mall Walk & Expo!

This is their 6th annual event and it will be our first time in attendance.  Since we weren’t diagnosed with food allergies until after last years walk I didn’t even know Kids with Food Allergies existed or knew anything about their event even though it’s local to us.

Now I know a ton about KFA and their walk.  I met with them last week to discuss our new food allergy support group and they will let us have a table at the event to hand out information about our new group and hopefully get some other local families to join.

We’re planning on getting a team together for the event and fundraising for KFA.  Registration is free and I am hoping I can get some of my family members to join us as well.  Here are the logistics:

Sunday, September 7, 2014
Registration opens at 9am
Walk and Fundraiser 10am – 1pm

The event features:

  • Allergy-friendly businesses and free samples
  • 5K walk around the mall (7 laps)
  • Interactive performance by “Food Allergies Rock” musician Kyle Dine
  • Award-winning family-friendly magic of Kyle and Kelly
  • Book signing by Colette Martin, author of the “Allergy Free Pantry” and “Learning to Bake Allergen Free”
  • Activities for children and more!

Below is the flyer for the event.  I’ve participated in a ton of charity races and events throughout my life, but this is the only one that truly “hits home” and we cannot wait to start a new tradition for our family and the new food allergy support group family too.

If you are local and free on September 7th please join my family and support KFA.


Love, Kate
