Las Vegas FARE Walk and Food Allergy Blogger Conference

In just a few days, we will be heading to Vegas for two fabulous events.  First, we’ll be participating in the Las Vegas FARE Walk .  My children are pretty excited to check out more than 50 allergen friendly vendors, face painters and plethora of kids activities. They are also pretty amped about eating safe food and meeting other children who live with food allergies.  My kids would love to connect with more of their peers who are avoiding gluten and dairy.FAREsafari

We’ve even joined a team to raise funds for food allergy research. If you can make a small donation towards this important cause, please do.  If not, that’s okay too.  Just in case you are feeling generous with a few seconds of your time, please share this fundraising link then use it to see if there is a walk close to you.

The Las Vegas Fare Walk will be held on Saturday November 2, 2013.  Please click here for exact location and details.

Did you know?

• Approximately 15 million Americans are living with food allergies.  This estimation includes  5.9 million children.

• In the United States, food allergies send someone to the emergency room every three minutes.

The second event that we’ll be attending has many desirable components for food allergy advocates, bloggers and parents in general. The Food Allergy Blogger Conference will be held at the South Point Hotel on Sunday, November  3rd and Monday November 4th.

As a mom/advocate/celiac, I am looking forward to two days of presentations regarding living with food allergies and intolerances.  Included in these sessions are details pertaining to 504 plans, coping with the social aspects of dietary limitations and all sorts of useful data.  For a complete agenda click here.

With the added bonus of the Wine & Sign Book Club & Cocktail Party during the evening of November 3rd at the South Point Hotel, this conference is going to fantastic.
