Congrats to Team FPIES for its wildly successful fundraising effort at the Berkeley Heights 5K this past Sunday. The Reff family and friends raised over $5,500 to benefit IAFFPE and those living with FPIES!
The group got the word out about FPIES to a crowd of more than 500 walkers and runners. The 30 members of Team FPIES wore custom “Fighting FPIES” shirts — everyone wanted to know “What is FPIES?” The team also hosted a booth to distribute IAFFPE brochures and sell FPIES awareness bracelets.
Our thanks go to event organizer and FPIES mom Allison Reff. After the event, Allision shared, “I couldn’t be happier to give back to IAFFPE. You helped my family get through a very difficult time and offered us such encouragement and hope. We are hoping to make this an annual fundraiser. It was such a heart-warming experience.”
