Event Description

Race for a Purpose
We invite you to come out and stay fit, by running or walking in part to help support food allergy research, education and awareness. 

Your Participation
Funds raised from the Food Allergy 5k Run/Walk will be donated to Metro Detroit Food Allergy Awareness Organizations, local research and case studies, education, and allergy day camps. We feel that it is important to keep proceeds within our community where local food allergy support groups and causes can directly benefit from the event.

The Facts
Over 12 million prople in this country suffer from food allergies, and the majority are school-aged children. Food allergy is a growing public health and safety concern in our nation, and scientists are reporting that food allergy diagnoses have doubled over the past decade. There is no cure for food allergies and strict avoidance of the allergy-causing food is the only way to prevent a reaction. Food allergy is also the leading cause of anaphylaxis (a severe allergic reaction) outside the hospital setting.

Participation will only increase awareness and the amount of contributions. This in turn will benefit a worthy cause that affects many of the children and adults around us.
