Help Pushpa raise money

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

My Story…

I am participating in a 5K Scotia Run to fundraise and support the Canadian Celiac Association British Columbia. 

I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in 2003. A little bit on Celiac Disease; it is a genetic, multi-system, autoimmune disorder where the body reacts to gluten and other prolamines in wheat (eg. Durum, Kamut, Spelt) rye, and barley.  Gluten consumption causes damage to the absorptive surface of the small intestine and can result in malnutrition, anemia, nutritional deficiencies, and an increased risk of other autoimmune diseases and some cancers of the gut.  Every person affected may react differently. It is estimated that about 80% of Canadians with celiac disease remain undiagnosed - and could be suffering from debilitating “mystery” symptoms. 

I am an active member of the Canadian Celiac Association, British Columbia. This non-profit organization is trying to find, treat, cure and help those who are impacted by and/or are suffering from Celiac Disease/Gluten sensitivity.

Thank you so much for your support, much appreciate it.
