Help Valorie raise money

For participating in 2020 Scotiabank Vancouver Half-Marathon & 5K

My Story…

After years of struggling with autoimmune diseases and allergies, I was tested for celiac disease after my cousins were diagnosed. No one had suggested my health issues might be celiac disease, but I tested positive. My daughter was tested and she too had celiac disease. The CCA was there to provide information and assist with the lifestyle changes necessary to live with Celiac Disease. Please support us to raise money to support those newly diagnosed, improve the quality of life of those with the disease and hopefully find a cure!
