I tried using the contact form on the Race website but it doesn't appear to work. Hoping someone might see this here....

 

I just heard about your race from the Chicago Tribune and am extremely sad to find out that we are gone this weekend and will not be able to attend. 
 
My daughter who is 9, was diagnosed about a year ago and is so sad and feels isolated because she is the only one at her school who has this decease. She would have loved to see and take part in this event to see she isn't alone :-( I have reached out to many "clubs/organizations" but it seems most have dissolved. I would love for her to be a part of something like this. 
 
My question is: are you planning on making this an annual thing? If so, can I get on a mailing list to be notified for next year? Also, if you even need volunteers I would love to help out. I actually sit on another walk committee for the last 10 years. I would love to help out anyway I can. I also work in Marketing and Social media so I have other skills too :-) 
 
Just let me know if you plan to have further events and if you need help organizing. 
 
BTW, great job Alex for taking an interest in your future! We need more people like you :-)

This is just a news article, it isn't directly from the race organizers. We have a service that finds articles related to Celiac Disease and posts them for us.

Have you looked at the website? It has a contact " form". It looked like it was working when I just looked at it. Maybe they have a FB page?

I tried the form on their website (http://alex5krage.org/contact-us/) but when I hit the submit button it tells me it is not working right now. I think the captcha thing is messed up. I would really like to get in touch with them but couldn't find any other way to do it. I was just hoping that someone on here would know someone.

If you don't have Facebook, maybe a friend could send them a message?
