Walk Details

Every child deserves to live a healthy and happy life. This is why we are asking for your participation and support for the ‘Walk for Andrea – Curing Food Allergies Together 2017.’

Currently strict avoidance of the allergenic food is the only way to avoid an allergic reaction. But, strict avoidance is not always possible. We need to help people cope with the effects of living with severe food allergies such as exclusion, isolation and stress.  We need to find a cure.

The Annual Walk for Andrea will be taking place on Sunday, September 24th, 2017 on the picturesque grounds of Milne Dam Conservation Park and Trail and you are invited!
