On Sunday, October 6, six local families will come together as Team Westford at Boston's annual Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) Walk. Many of us have walked before, but this is the first time we will participate as a "Westford team." This teamwork has paid off as we're now #3 in fundraising across all the participating teams!
We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of the community. As of Sunday we've raised $2,331 and we honored to see our team listed as Silver Sponsors on the FARE Walk t-shirts. All of these funds will help FARE's efforts to raise awareness, educate caregivers, and conduct life-saving research. There's still more money to raise though!
If you'd like to help us in our efforts, there are a few things you can do. You can join us at the walk at Hopkinton State Park on October 6, you can spread the word about our team or you can contribute to Team Westford at www.foodallergywalk.org/boston/teamwestford (A few hundred more dollars could help us reach the #2 slot!)
