Help Marian raise money

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

My Story…

Six years ago I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. It helped explained a lot of health issues that I’ve experienced most of my life: migraines, skin rashes, fatigue, osteoporosis, digestive discomfort and joint pain, all of which improved with a gluten free diet. The most difficult part of my life now is participating in social activities that either involve food or require eating food outside of my own home. The CCA has been working to improve laws governing labeling and handling of food products by wholesalers and retailers, and provides education and guidelines for hospitality and institutional food providers (think restaurants, cafés, hotels, airports, convention centres, schools and universities, hospitals and old age care facilities.) Please help the CCA create a safe, healthy, inclusive community for everyone!


Join us for this special “fun”-raising experience! Run, walk, donate or volunteer. Together we can fund research and support those who need to follow the gluten-free lifestyle for health.  All you need is a passion for helping people to unite us as a team. "Running Gluten-Free" carries us over the finish line!

By joining us, you'll receive training and fundraising tools, team t-shirts, photos, and great prizes. Raise donations over $200 and we will refund $30 of your registration fee. Set-up a fundraising account and receive a wonderful gift bag from our partners!
