Red Sneakers for Oakley Foundation
Red Sneakers for Oakley is a Florida-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to raising awareness about the dangers of food allergies, founded by Robert and Merrill Debbs after they tragically lost their 11-year-old-son, Oakley, due to a severe reaction to nuts. The Debbs family feels the medical community did not properly direct them on the severity and outcomes of anaphylaxis, and they have made it their mission to saves lives through educational programs, advocacy and community outreach.
Red Sneakers for Oakley undertakes year-round initiatives to promote a better understanding of what it’s like to live with a food allergy, to reduce the number of deaths caused by food allergies and to better recognize symptoms and respond more quickly to allergic reactions.
