I am still formulating something to write about the first Food Allergy Bloggers Conference that happened last weekend and thank yous are a huge part of the thoughts rattling around in my mind.  (I am loving everyone’s recaps!)  This thank you is a little time sensitive because Duane Gordin, part of the rock star FARE walk team that includes his wife, Dana Gordin, is running in the Las Vegas Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon on Saturday, November 17th.  Duane has been training for a 4 hour finish for his 26.2 mile journey through Las Vegas at night and is carrying with him the names of FARE walk supporters for each mile he conquers.

Dana and Duane helped me find the South Point as our venue for the conference and introduced me to Chef Keith and so many other wonderful folks.  Dana and Duane – you are appreciated and loved!  As fundraising from the Las Vegas Walk is still open, I wanted to share this message from the Dana Gordin about the race on Saturday:

Here’s Duane’s extra motivation to finish the Rock n Roll Marathon in under 4 hours.  Thanks to the many who gave to help find a cure for Scott, Matthew and the 1 in 13 children with a potentially life threatening food allergy.  He has a list of each Team Gordin donor that he’ll use to motivate him during each mile of his 26.2 mile race.  (Due to anonymity requests, just initials here.  He has the full names on his list.) 

However, he doesn’t have any donor names for miles 1 thru 5.  If you haven’t had a chance to donate, please do so now and get your named added to his motivation list.  Donate at Team Gordin:

  1. I am in complete awe of the Gordin family the food allergy walk. The festive energy, fun music and a serious group of committed people all together in one location with one goal–food allergy awareness (okay, fundraising too) was incredible. Thank you Gordins for being our guiding light!

    BUT…hats off to Homa, who never sleeps! She also supported the Walk and being part of the committee putting on this fabulous event while wearing her Food Allergy Bloggers co-founder hat too. I’m humbled by this woman’s commitment to our food allergy world.
