Team Gluten-Free NYC 2012 Marathon Pledge-a-thon
My NYC Celiac Meetup group is having a virtual fundraiser. Read on for more details. Please email me if you have any questions.


Join Team Gluten-Free at the 2012 ING NYC Marathon and help raise more money than ever before. On Sunday November 5th, five athletes will be running for Team Gluten-Free to help promote Celiac and gluten-free awareness. This online pledge-a-thon is to help raise money for Team Gluten-Free. 

Please support the runners on this year's Team Gluten-Free at the 2012 NYC ING Marathon. Your RSVP and donation will go directly to Team Gluten-Free.
You have two ways to donate:
  1. If you would like to donate $24.99 or less, please do so using this link: http://www.crowdrise.com/teamgf2012
  2. If you would like to donate $25.00, please RSVP on the NYC Celiac Disease Meetup event page using PayPal. All $25 donations and RSVPs on this page will get a t-shirt.

Meet the runners:

Since its inception in 1990, Celiac Disease Foundation has been at the forefront of Celiac disease education, information, awareness, advocacy and support services to both the lay as well as the health professional communities. Charting a territory not ventured by any other official Celiac disease organization, CDF was instrumental in bringing attention to the disease at a time when the word Celiac, much less knowledge about it, was far from most people's consciousness. In the two decades since, CDF stands as the "go to" resource organization for anything and everything Celiac.

CDF Team Gluten-Free™ is a fundraising program that provides a simple way for athletes and non-athletes alike to raise awareness and funds for celiac disease and non-celiac disease gluten sensitivity. Fundraising efforts may include any event from marathons to triathlons, or even bar mitzvahs, wedding favors and virtual fundraisers! The money raised by CDF Team Gluten-Free™ participants goes directly towards summer camp scholarships for children on the gluten-free diet as well as celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity research, support and awareness programs. CDF Team Gluten-Free™ is a fundraising arm of the Celiac Disease Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit, public benefit corporation. Visit the website for more information.

Please remember, if you would like a t-shirt you must make your $25 donation through the Meetup event page by RSVPing YES. Once you have made this $25 donation, I will contact you for your mailing address and t-shirt size.

Any donation helps Team Gluten-Free and the Celiac Disease Foundation. Thank you in advance!
