Seattle Children’s Running from Gluten Virtual 5K
May 24 - May 30
Join the Celiac Program at Seattle Children’s Hospital during the last week of Celiac Awareness month for the “Running from Gluten Virtual 5K” to raise awareness about celiac disease.
Celiac disease affects 1 in 100 people, and the only treatment is a gluten-free diet. This is a condition that can present with many different symptoms including abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea, poor growth, mental illness and neurological symptoms. Some individuals have no symptoms at all.
The Celiac Program at Seattle Children’s aims to build community, raise awareness, and act as a resource for families and medical practitioners.
Join the Running from Gluten 5K Facebook group to share your photos on race day, or post them on social media using #runningfromgluten5k. All proceeds from this event will go towards supporting the Celiac Program at Seattle Children’s Hospital.
