March 19th was the Symposium kick-off marking the beginning of local fundraising and community involvement. With 4 speakers and a room filled with engaged families, teachers, nurses and allergy advocates, we extended our conference time for those who wanted to stay longer.

On May 7th, we were fortunate enough to have Larry Gebert feature our event on his early morning KTVB show. We can't thank him enough for his time and humor at such 'wee hours of the mornin'.

A HUGE 'THANK YOU' to those who donated to my SAFE FARE Walk Team. I reached my goal of raising $500 through cash and product donations in order to support the sponsorship of my table.
