2 posts in this topic

Only 2 more weeks until the Baltimore Making Tracks for Celiacs 5K & 10K race and Gluten-Free Vendor Fair on Sunday, May 20th! Register by May 7th to be guaranteed a performance T-shirt and reduced registration fee. After May 7th, registration prices go up and no guarantee on a T-shirt (it will be first come first serve at the day of the race). You can register as an individual, join a team or just make donation. It's easy to set up and personalize your own fundraising team page. Team donations and pledges are what propel the Center for Celiac Research towards achieving its goals.

DON'T FORGET we have a new location this year: UMBC (University of Maryland Baltimore County), University Center building, 1000 Hilltop Circle, Baltimore, MD 21250. Click here to view the 5K and 10K course map. The 10K race will loop around UMBC campus twice. Water will be available at certain locations on the course. Also new this year is chipped timing.

Registration will begin at 8am, 5K and 10K races start at 9am, and the Gluten-Free Vendor Fair opens at 9am. Registration, the Vendor Fair and post-event activities will take place at the University Center, 3rd floor ballroom. There will be free parking in the Administration Garage and Stadium Lot. (Please see the UMBC website for campus maps.) For directions to UMBC, visit the Baltimore page on www.celiacwalk.org.

If you can't participate in the 5K or 10K race but still want to be a part of the event and support the Center, we now offer registration solely for the Gluten-Free Vendor Fair. And if you register before May 7th, you are guaranteed a performance T-shirt. Fees are $30 for ages 13 & up and $15 for under 13. There will be gluten-free refreshments available to sample and to purchase at the Vendor Fair. We already have 45 vendors signed up and more to come, including some new gluten-free companies!

Other amenities include a silent auction with items such as a Joe Flacco autographed football, restaurant gift cards, movie passes, gift baskets and much more. There will be children's activities, awards & metals for winning participants, and a raffle. Get a free raffle ticket for each $100 of fundraising (not including registration fee) received by May 20th; matching gifts double your fundraising!

To register for the 5K walk/run, 10K run or Gluten-Free Vendor Fair, visit www.celiacwalk.org. Register by May 7th (only 5 days left!) and you are guaranteed a performance T-shirt. Those that register after May 7th and on the day of the race are not guaranteed a T-shirt.

We'd love to see a bigger turnout this year so get everyone you know to come out and join us!! This event supports the Center for Celiac Research in a major way and we count on it for crucial research funds for the year. Many thanks to everyone who has participated in the past and we hope to have your continued support for this year!

Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday, May 20, 2012!! Any questions, email celiaccenter@peds.umaryland.edu or celiacwalk@yahoo.com.

I'm signed up! It will be my first 5K since before my daughter was born (she's 8 1/2) now. So excited for the race and the vendor fair.

    • Welcome!   You were smart to think about cross contamination.  Although it is great that there are so many gluten-free options out there, in the beginning it is best to try a whole foods diet, until your son feels a bit better.  The learning curve for the gluten-free diet is steep.  It is better for you to get everything down before letting others feed him.   When I was diagnosed, my hubby had been gluten free for 12 years.  I thought I knew the drill and converted right over to those gluten-free goodies I baked him.  Turned out, like many of us, I had some food inolerances not related to gluten but as a result of gut damage.  So, additives like Xantham gum made me think I was getting glutened, but I was not.  So, again, try to stick to naturally gluten free foods that are less processed for a while.  When you do venture out, I use "find me gluten free" and read the reviews from celiacs (not a person who thinks gluten-free is a way to lose weight! )   Here are some great tips from out Newbie 101 thread:  
    • I have the same problem. Was told it was psoriasis but no treatments worked even injections. I was daignosed celiac in may, and noticed a year ago the palm of my hand would itch intensely then get small blisters. I believe they are both dh. Have been gluten-free since diagnosis but still have issues with both areas. Thankful digestive issues cleared but would love to know how long before they clear up? I hope we both get feed back and best wishes to you!
    • Yes it most certainly could be a false negative, and I would bet you a dozen donuts that it is (gluten free, of course.   )  At the very least you can be sure it is related to gluten.  These gluten rashes take forever to clear up.  I don't know about you, but whenever I start to doubt my gluten intolerance, I just look at my skin, and the old blood stains on my sheets, and I am reassured that it's not all in my head, and I need to avoid gluten as if it were a bucket of battery acid.
    • Hello, My fiance and I are going to Singapore for our honeymoon next year and I was wondering if anyone knew any cafes/restaurants etc that have gluten-free dishes? We previously went two years ago and enjoyed ourselves so much that we definitely wanted to go back our our honeymoon. Catch is I got diagnosed as being gluten intolerant a few months ago, negative for Coeliac though. If I eat gluten I have bad nausea, bloating, diarrhea etc. Not pretty for a honeymoon :-) I am more than happy to eat fruit at breakfast and make do with steamed rice at dinner etc but if anyone has any ideas on anywhere I can safely eat that would be much appreciated. I don't care how much it costs! Also is it possible for me to bring packaged gluten-free food into Singapore from Australia? I am not sure on the rules. Thank you!!
    • Went in and talked to the manager of our pm and asked about the gluten free pizza, and he told me he can't guarantee its 100% gluten free because of the flour in the air from the other crusts being made.  I value the honesty.   The other employee also mentioned changing gloves.   I was thinking wow great, until I walked out and got to thinking about cross contamination from everyone grabbing the toppings out of the same bins and spreading the sauce with the same utensils.    My son was just diagnosed this week so we are new to the whole lifestyle.   So any help or info is greatly appreciated.    Thanks
