Making Tracks for Celiacs
NINTH INTERNATIONAL RUN/WALK FOR CELIAC DISEASE
Readers, I hope you enjoyed a wonderful Memorial Day. I am rested and ready to report on the walk my family and I participated in to benefit the Center for Celiac Research. Let's hear it for the nearly 600 people who came out to the picturesque Jamesville Beach County Park in Jamesville, NY on May 22, 2010.
Karen, the organizer let me know that the event has raised $22,000 which is up $4,000 from last year. There were approx. 600 people in attendance. There were 82 runners this year. Thirty more than last year. Way to go Central New York!
If you haven't participated in an event. All the vendors provide gluten free goodies and/or are resources that are worth knowing about. Here is an abbreviated list of sponsors from the event where I was.
Outback Steakhouse (provided samples to eat for lunch)
Uno Chicago Grill (provided samples to eat for lunch)
Mary's Gone Crackers
Food Should Taste Good
Katz Gluten Free
Bob's Red Mill
Enjoy Life, Eat Freely
Blue Diamond Almonds
Bakery On Main
The Cookie Connection
Nothing But Noodles
Now if that doesn't make your mouth water, imagine getting a grocery bag filled with samples from these sponsors. Another feature about going to walk/runs is local vendors, you may not have been aware of in your area. If you still want to participate go to www.celiacwalk.org to see where walks are this month.
