Community Fundraisers

AIFA has a growing band of community fundraisers who are not afraid to slip into some budgie smugglers or lycra to swim or cycle long distances to raise funds for AIFA and allergy research. They run and train and suffer pain and ask their networks for support. We think they are amazing. Some fundraisers organise sewing circles, plant sales and raffles in their community to contibute to AIFA grants that help others with immune disease. They raise awareness of immune disease in their call to action.

We want to thank and celebrate them here.
