 Upcoming Event: Making Tracks for Celiacs

The 2014 Baltimore Making Tracks for Celiacs & Gluten-Free Vendor Fair is Sunday, October 5.  Register for the 5K Walk/Run before Monday, September 22 to get the discounted fee of $30 (age 13 & up) or $15 (under 13) and to guarantee a T-shirt.  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.

Gluten- Free Vendor Fair:
After the races, plan on enjoying some gluten-free refreshments available to sample and to purchase at the Gluten-Free Vendor Fair.  We will have many vendors this year, including some new gluten-free companies.  If you can’t participate in the 5K, but still want to be a part of the event and support the Center, you can register solely for the Vendor Fair.  Fees are $10 for admission only (over age 5), $20 for admission plus t-shirt (over age 5) and kids under age 5 are free (no t-shirt).

Other Amenities:
Silent auction, children’s activities, awards & metals for winning participants, and a raffle with fun items like restaurant gift cards, gluten-free foods and more.

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!
