ABOUT FESTIVUS FOR FAIT

This is our second year raising funds for the FAIT program, whose mission is to develop and deliver cutting-edge food allergy treatment to all families in BC who desire it. To learn more about the FAIT Program, visit www.bcchr.ca/foodallergy.

Our Inaugural Festivus for FAIT was a huge success, with proceeds from ticket sales, sponsorships, and the silent auction exceeding $60,000. With these funds, the FAIT program purchased an ImageXplorer machine to analyze over 300 individual food allergens with one blood sample. This machine will be used for FAIT research projects this year. Click here for event highlights.

For the 2nd Annual Festivus for FAIT, the Canadian FAIT Foundation will be raising funds to support the Adolescent Transition FAIT Program, a new research program to understand the challenges faced by adolescents with food allergy as they transition to adult care, and to identify and implement solutions to bridge the gap. Your generosity will help accelerate progress towards improved treatments and quality of life for adolescents living with food allergies. Make a donation today.
