Families walking to raise awareness for food allergies.
The "Food Allergy Research and Education Walk" hit the pavement in Rogers Sunday afternoon.
About 15-million Americans are affected by food allergies, including 1 in 13 children.
The goal of Sunday's walk was to raise money for advocacy, education and medical research.
A cause that many can relate to.
"We both have children that have severe food allergies, we both watched our children almost die, and they are so allergic that even if you kiss them after you've eaten something that they're allergic to, they react," says Lisa Pollard, co -chair of the walk.
"It's near and dear to our hearts."
The walk was just about a mile long, and it was the second year they held this event.
