The Kicking 4 Celiac Foundation is a recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit organization focused on educating people affected by celiac disease and promoting celiac disease awareness to the public at large. The Kicking 4 Celiac Foundation also offers a scholarship program to college students affected with celiac disease. The Kicking 4 Celiac Foundation also works to raise funds for Celiac Disease centers through a variety of meaningful charity events and sponsorship opportunities. Promoting an active lifestyle and including physical activities in its fundraisers and events is at the core of the Foundation’s primary goal, which is to demonstrate the potential for celiac sufferers to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle while confronting the effects of celiac disease.

Celiac Disease Scholarship Program - The Kicking 4 Celiac Foundation offers a one of a kind national scholarship opportunity that helps students off-set the costs of gluten-free living when entering college. This one time scholarship award helps students subsidize their meal costs that are dictated by living with Celiac Disease. These scholarships are awarded to students graduating high school and entering into a four-year undergraduate college program, and are doing so with Celiac Disease. As the daily struggles of living with Celiac Disease can be debilitating, each student applying is one that exemplifies perseverance, hard work, and dedication, all traits the Kicking 4 Celiac Foundation prides itself on. Other criteria must be met during the application process, but we want to reward those that live with Celiac Disease and continually open new doors for themselves through their hard work!

Cleats 4 Kids Program - The Kicking 4 Celiac Foundation’s “Cleats 4 Kids” program collects sports cleats for both boys and girls and donates them to recreation centers and organizations in need, throughout the country. Currently in it’s early stages, we have partnered this program with various organizations in underserved areas of New York and Los Angeles. This program was developed to give children in underprivileged areas the opportunity to play sports without the concern of being able to afford proper footwear. The Foundation collects cleats, new and used, not torn, and packs and ships them out to these areas. The purpose of this is to keep these children active, and to help them continue to live an enjoyable, happy, and healthy lifestyle. Exercise, as well as proper nutrition and education is important, and the foundation helps to strengthen that ideal within the recipients of these donations.
