Donate to the Cause
All donations are used to raise awareness about the dangers of food allergies through the creation of educational programs, community outreach and advocacy.
Organize an event in your community
Oakley’s favorite sport was soccer. The Debbs have begun yearly soccer tournaments and fundraisers in both Palm Beach FL and Quogue NY. It is way for entire families to come together in support of their friends with severe food allergies. We encourage other communities around the world to organize their own soccer games, field days, tennis tournaments or whatever family recreation that is enjoyed.
plan an awareness program at your school
Schools are a gateway to reach children, parents and educators. We have worked with schools across the country to organize Red Sneakers Days, which include clinical education, defined precautionary programs, and industry facts from our national partners. The goal is not only to increase education and awareness, but to educate those who are not directly affected by them.
support allergy sensitive food initiatives
We encourage restaurants to take the proper precautions in identifying the major food allergens on their menus, because there is too much at risk. The red sneakers logo can symbolize the restaurant’s taking responsibility and demonstrate their sensitivity to people suffering with food allergies. We also support influencers who pioneer allergy-conscious cooking through considerate recipes.
