Trace Adkins is Honorary Chair of the 2009 FAAN Walk

Thanks to celebrities like Trace Adkins who help bring attention to causes (like food allergies!) near and dear to our hearts.  Press release from the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network (FAAN):

"FAIRFAX, Va. (July 22, 2009) – Demonstrating his unwavering commitment to finding a cure for food allergies, country music star Trace Adkins will once again serve as the National Honorary Chair of the 2009 FAAN Walk for Food Allergy: Moving Toward A Cure.

This year, the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network (FAAN) is sponsoring a record-number 33 walks in cities across the country as well as online, all in the name of raising funds for food allergy research and education.

Adkins, who has put his stamp on country music with a string of award-winning hits, has made an even stronger impression with FAAN members for his work in increasing food allergy awareness. For Adkins and his wife Rhonda, it’s personal – their young daughter Brianna has multiple food allergies.

“I know firsthand how important FAAN’s efforts to increase funding for food allergy research and education are,” said Adkins. “I’m honored to once again be serving as the National Honorary Chair for FAAN’s Walk for Food Allergy. Please join me and thousands of others nationwide in raising awareness about food allergies and money to find a cure!”
