Thanks to Steve at planetlactose.blogspot.com for the heads up on the upcoming "Moving Toward a Cure" Walk sponsored by the Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network (FAAN). Fundraising walks will be happening all across the United States, and I have registered Team Dairy Free for the walk in San Diego. If you appreciate the information provided here at Go Dairy Free, please show your support by donating on behalf of our team at http://www.firstgiving.com/godairyfree.
Our fundraising goal is currently at $1000, but we hope to far exceed this. All contributions are greatly appreciated. Even if $1 is all you can spare at this moment, it adds up quickly! We also welcome any dairy free fans in the Southern California area to sign up for the walk with our team. Thank you for your support.
