Can you provide a secure changing room/staging area to accommodate costumed attendees?: Yes

Please (briefly) describe the event and your organization's role::
The FAAN Walk for Food Allergy in Houston is a free, family friendly event focused on raising awareness about food allergy. Today in the U.S., more than 12 million have a food allergy. As many as 1 in 13 children under age 18 have a food allergy with 40% having a severe or life threatening food allergy.

Our event is the largest food allergy walk in the U.S. with over 2,000 participants.

KPRC Local 2 (NBC affiliate) news anchor Dominique Sachse is our honorary chair.

Our event is supported by many well known corporate sponsors including: CenterPoint Energy, H-E-B, KPRC Local 2, Memorial Hermann, Red Robin, Sprinkles Cupcakes, Texas Children's Hospital, Toyota (Friedkin Company), and all of the major allergy clinics.

We would love to have you join us for our family friendly event, specifically for the pre and post walk carnival festivities.

How did you hear about us? :
FAAN does walk events across the U.S. and events in other states have worked with the Rebel Legion on their events. We hope you can join us in Houston.



UPDATE 8/13/2010
From the contact, Mike:

1. We are fine with the prop weapons. The event is family friendly with many children, but I am sure the weapons add to the costume.

2. The event is outside at Sam Houston Park. We do have private (in uniform) security in the park. Historically we have not had a secure changing area as one has not been needed. We work well with both the city and historical society. If a secure changing and storage area is required, I feel sure that we can arrange it.

3. There are no fees. We do ask everyone to register (free) online for our insurance purposes, and I can get you those details. We also provide free parking at the City Hall Annex Garage adjacent to the park.

Thank you so very much. I am very excited and hope we can make it happen!
