Trace Adkins will serve as the national honorary chair of the 2008 Walk for Food Allergy event which will be held in 26 cities in the fall, as well as online. Adkins became involved with the Food Allergy & Anaphalaxis Network (FAAN) after one of his daughters was diagnosed with an allergy to peanuts. "Millions of school-age children are afflicted with food allergies in this country, and the numbers are increasing each year. Much more research funds are needed to find out what is causing this problem and how we can fix it. With the help of thousands of walkers and volunteers nationwide, we can hopefully raise more money to help find a cure," Adkins said.
