Participating In The 2013 EpiPen Take Action Event

These runners have seen better days…

A pair of well used runners

…hopefully, they will see me through the 5 km run I am participating in tomorrow.

The 2013 Allergy/Asthma Allergy Association (AAIA) Event of the yearThe EpiPen Take Action Eventraising funds for anaphylaxis research and education.

Over $429, 000 has been raised over the past 8 years from various sources…of which the AAIA has helped the Canadian Allergy, Asthma and Immunology Foundation fund research and patient education.

I have managed to slowly get myself back into running shape after my pinched nerve trauma I experienced back in August 2013.

I am looking forward to gathering with our local allergy community to lace up for this worthy cause…perhaps I will see you there!

Update: 

Well, I did it!

Me at the 2013 EpiPen Take Action Event in Whitby

I ran the 5 km in support of anaphylaxis research and education. It was a great morning for a run along Lake Ontario.

A great turn out…plenty of fun for the young…a dunking tank, bouncy castle, face painting and a clown making animals with balloons.

How do you help support anaphylaxis research and education in your community?
