Andrea’s Story

The Walk for Andrea was founded to honour Andrea Mariano. She was an 18 year old Ontario teenager who died during her first weeks at Queen’s University in September 2015. Andrea died because of sipping a drink that contained either dairy or peanut products, both of which she was allergic to.

The Walk for Andrea is an official community fundraiser for the Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids). All funds raised go the Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Program to find a cure.

Kristina remembers Andrea

“It brings a great amount of joy to know that her death will raise awareness that can save a life because that’s what Andrea was about, helping to improve the lives of others.” – Kristina Mariano

SickKids Plaque Ceremony


On Friday, July 27th, 2018,

Representatives from The Walk for Andrea Charity Event were presented with a Special Plaque on the SickKids Donor Wall at Toronto’s Hospital for Sick Children.  The plaque is in recognition of our fundraising events which, to date, have raised over $50,000 for the Sick Kids Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Program for research to find a cure for life threatening Food Allergies.
