    • Apprentice Builders (toddlers) can build using soft foam LEGO bricks.
    • Journeyman Builders (ages 3-6) build with LEGO® Duplo® bricks.
    • Master Builders (ages 7 and up) can create designs with brick paper and then build using classic LEGO bricks.
  • Exploring the inside of the royal castle full of LEGO brick decorations, the king and queen’s thrones and secret passageways.
  • Virtually build a fortress wall on screen and test its strength with a LEGO catapult.
  • Using a colorful array of green bricks, children can plan and create and build their own topiaries.
  • Climb into the lookout tower and defend the castle walls.

15 Million Reasons to Walk…

The FARE Walk for Food Allergy, presented by Mylan Specialty L.P., raises critical funds and awareness each year to create a safer, more inclusive world for the 15 million Americans with food allergies, including all those at risk for life-threatening anaphylaxis. This year, tens of thousands of people will gather at walks in nearly 60 communities nationwide to support their loved ones, friends, co-workers and neighbors living with life-threatening food allergies.

Benefitting Food Allergy Research & Education, the FARE Walk for Food Allergy offers fun activities for the entire family while helping to advance food allergy research, education, advocacy and awareness initiatives. Register and give today as an individual, or start a team and invite your friends, family and co-workers to fundraise so that one day we can say FAREwell to food allergies!

ABOUT FARE
Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) works on behalf of the 15 million Americans with food allergies, including all those at risk for life-threatening anaphylaxis. This potentially deadly disease affects 1 in every 13 children in the U.S. – or roughly two in every classroom. FARE’s mission is to improve the quality of life and the health of individuals with food allergies, and to provide them hope through the promise of new treatments. Our work is organized around three core tenets: LIFE – support the ability of individuals with food allergies to live safe, productive lives with the respect of others through our education and advocacy initiatives; HEALTH – enhance the healthcare access of individuals with food allergies to state-of-the-art diagnosis and treatment; and HOPE – encourage and fund research in both industry and academia that promises new therapies to improve the allergic condition.  For more information, please visit www.foodallergy.org and find us on  Twitter@FoodAllergy, Facebook, YouTube and Pinterest.
