Each Walker will seek sponsors for the event. Sponsored funds will go to
the Diabetes Association. Walk Starts at 10:00 am. Separate Tax Deductible donations to Gluten Free In WNY are gratefully accepted.
Minimally 1 in 18 people with Diabetes have Celiac Disease. Many have never heard of Celiac Disease or that they could have it.
Last Year Team Celiac was the Largest team (54 walkers) and raised the 3rd
largest amount of funds. Our awareness effort also found 4 new celiacs that
I am aware of and caused great interest.
Join us for a casual winter walk inside the Galleria Mall, help Raise Awareness of Celiac Disease and Support Diabetes.
