AAIA Take Action Against Reactions Walk
Sunday, May 27, 2012
Registration: 11:30 am
Please join us in Mississauga for the 2012 EpiPen/AAIA Take Action Against Reactions Walk on Sunday, May 27 at Erindale Park (http://mapq.st/GD7u4I).
Last year we raised approximately $13,500. While raising funds for research and education was an important component of the walk, what was even more important was growing a community of supporters who have a better understanding of the challenges of living with anaphylaxis, allergies and asthma. It was just a wonderful community event.
Check in here for regular updates, to donate, volunteer or sponsor.
