TORONTO, ON, April 24, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Kyle Dine never planned on becoming a children's musician when he was younger, nor touring across North America performing concerts to gymnasiums packed with students! However, his life-long diagnosis of severe food allergies, has lead him down this road after a near death experience from an allergic reaction. Ever since, he has been educating others about severe allergies through music to help create awareness for potentially life-threatening reactions known as anaphylaxis.
This May, he heads on his biggest journey yet with the aptly titled "Road to No Reaction" tour. In a span of 40 days, Dine will be performing over 50 concerts at schools, libraries, museums and community centres. Dine is excited for the tour but acknowledges its challenges: "It will be a grind at times. It's a long time living on the road and being away from my family, but I am passionate about raising awareness and happy to have the opportunity to reach so many people."
Dine educates children about the basics of food allergy including the signs and symptoms, treatment, and what people can do to help keep others with severe allergies safe. When performing he uses a creative blend of self-written songs, trivia, puppets and includes plenty of time for Q&A. "I'm always amazed how engaged kids are in learning about allergies and how they can help others. It's really encouraging and keeps me inspired," Dine remarks.
Companies that cater to needs of allergic families have taken notice of his efforts and are jumping on board the tour in the form of sponsorship. Gwen Smith, Editor of Allergic Living magazine (www.allergicliving.com
), is delighted to align with Dine's tour: "Kyle is an amazing musician and ambassador for allergy awareness. Among food allergy families, he's a huge draw and the positive messaging in his songs fits just perfectly with Allergic Living's own approach to living well with allergies."
