This might be a bit extreme, but I just gave money towards a walk for HIV and it made me think, "why can't there be a walk for Celiac?" Does anyone know how one would even go about organizing something like this? I think it would be a great way to raise awareness and maybe get some donations for research. Even if there were only a handful of us from different states maybe we could make a difference. What does everyone think? We could pick a day and make it Celiac awareness day and do a walk for Celiac? I live in the Philadelphia area and would be more than willing to try to set something up here. Am I crazy or do you think something like this is possible? I would love to hear what your opinions are and if anyone has any other suggestions/ideas/concerns. :P

YIPPEE---I will be on the bandwagon next year. I think we will be hearing more about this in the future as people make the connection between eating gluten free and how it will help with joint pain, ADD/ADHD, autism and other ailments. This is just the tip of the iceberg. Barbara

Yeah, I didn't make it to the one in San Diego this year, but they've been holding it annually for a little while.

Indiana Chapters of CSA had their first walk this July. Their website is www.glutenfreeindy.com Contact Diane or Joyce through that site, I am sure they would love to share from their planning experience. I hope to organize a 5K run next year in my area - a fund and awareness raiser. I think it is a super idea!
