Kicker Attempts Second World Record for Celiac Disease Awareness

Celiac.com 10/07/2011 - In October 2010, Kicking 4 Celiac Foundation Executive Director Craig Pinto made 717 regulation field goals in a 12 hour period to set a Guinness World Record. That success marked the beginning of the foundation's annual “Kicking4Celiac” event, which raises money and awareness for celiac disease.

Pinto must make a at least 1,000 field goals in 24 hours to break the existing world record.

This year’s event will help to grow the foundation's scholarship program, which, beginning in early 2012, will award scholarships to college-bound students with celiac disease.

Speaking of last year's event, Pinto said that "the progression mirrored what I went through with celiac disease. The initial mental stress, the physical stress, but the hard work to make it through, and come out on top. It is something I want to continue to do, to break people’s thoughts and stigmas that when you’re diagnosed with celiac disease that your physical abilities will change."

Pinto added that the “support from people reaching out was absolutely amazing, and it just showed how strong the celiac community stands behind and supports each other. We’re in this together.”

Most of the articles you presented were blogs. They focused in one article pushed by the American Chemical Society. The research looked at ground coffee in Brazil ONLY. https://www.acs.org/content/acs/en/pressroom/newsreleases/2014/august/keeping-filler-ingredients-out-of-your-cup-of-cof...

Okay, a positive on thyroid antibodies, but what about the rest of the thyroid panel? That tells more of the story. Is rest of the thyroid panel all in the normal ranges? Is that why you were recommended to take a supplement instead of actual thyroid hormone replacement? Many doctors try a...
