Help SAMANTHA raise money

For participating in 2021 Scotiabank Vancouver Half-Marathon & 5K

My Story…

Through their education, advocacy, and research the Canadian Celiac Association has improved the lives of people like me. I've been living with Celiac Disease for almost 15 years and life has come a long way from heavy crumby bread and mushy pasta. The organization works hard with manufacturers and suppliers to ensure food is safe to eat and gluten isn't hidden behind ingredient labels and with doctors to ensure they are up-to-date on celiac research and protocols. They work with medical researchers to learn more about Celiac Disease and a potential cure. For now, the only cure is to eat food that doesn't contain gluten and thanks to the CCA that has gotten much easier.

Donate to help SAMANTHA raise money for 2021 Scotiabank Vancouver Half-Marathon & 5K’s fundraising campaign.
