Over the last three years, the Westchster Celiac Sprue Support Group's participation in the International Walks for Celiac Disease has raised approximately $ 100,000. Those proceeds were donated to fund research at the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University and the University of Maryland Celiac Center for Celiac Research. We're counting on repeating the success of prior years and doing even better this year.
