Our family of fundraisers raise vital funds throughout the year to support those at risk from severe allergic reactions and anaphylaxis. We are forever grateful to every single one of them for their commitment and enthusiasm – thank you! And, of course, to those that support all their efforts too. As we celebrate their achievements, we hope you’ll be inspired to get involved and join our fundraising hall of fame…
The Carey Family
Owen tragically died in April 2017 after suffering a severe allergic reaction to food while eating out in London to celebrate his birthday. He had just turned 18. His family and friends have devoted themselves to raising awareness of severe allergies in adolescents and young adults, and are at the heart of our fundraising family.
From Owen’s brother and brother-in-law proudly running the London Marathon in 2018, to Owen’s 12 year old nephew, Gulliver, bravely cutting his hair after four years of growing it long to be ‘just like Uncle Owen’, and everything in between – with every challenge faced, the Carey family has loyally supported the Anaphylaxis Campaign and we couldn’t be more grateful.
We are supporting the Carey family as they take forward their campaign for a change in the law to require that allergens are clearly listed on menus in UK restaurants. For more information, please visit: owens-law.co.uk
