On Friday, May 31, the first Allison Rose Foundation (ARF) scholarship was awarded to Independence (Ohio) High School (IHS) senior, Hannah Fleming.

ARF offered the $1,000 scholarship to inspire the legacy of Allison Suhy. In order to win this scholarship, applicants must have had at least a 2.0 GPA, participated in two or more activities at IHS, entered into a two or four-year university, and were required to complete an essay describing areas in their life where they demonstrated leadership, advocacy and overcame obstacles either in their school, social or family lives.

Hannah has been a tremendous leader at IHS through Student Council and has displayed her amazing personality in all of the school musicals. She will attend Ohio University in the Fall. We are proud to name Hannah as the inaugural recipient of the ARF scholarship and wish her the best of luck as she embarks on her next journey.

Thank you to Hannah, and to all the applicants who applied and showcased such incredible accomplishments and character.

We are excited to announce the launch of Ohio and Pennsylvania CAN. Spearheaded by The Land of Can, empowering food-allergic families to embrace their possibilities instead of defining themselves by their limitations, and alongside Red Sneakers For Oakley, we will introduce OH & PA to the Land of CAN, empowering kids to act and think positively and learn about food allergies.

As part of a GoFundMe campaign, we will provide each of the 1,738 public elementary schools in Ohio and each of the 1,619 public elementary schools in Pennsylvania with a special children’s book, authentic food allergy resources and CAN empowerment tools that will help all kids soar!

But we need your help. This CANpaign enables us to establish the Land of Can in every public elementary school in Ohio and Pennsylvania (for only $17.50 per school).

Visit the GoFundMe page for details and to contribute. http://bit.ly/thelandofcan.

On May 2, 2019, our dream came true. We officially kicked off Food Allergy: Educate and Empower to high school students at Cuyahoga Heights Schools and then on May 9 at Independence High School. Having the opportunity to engage with these teens and young adults, share Allison’s story and show them the severity of food allergies and how they can make a difference and save lives was inspiring.

We are currently scheduling educational sessions for the 2019-2020 school year. If you would like to learn more and find a time for us to speak to your students, please contact us at info@allisonrosefoundation.org or 440.644.0504.
