Thank you so much for your interest in running to change the lives of people with coeliac disease. Every penny you raise will help more people suffering with the symptoms of untreated coeliac disease get the diagnosis they need. Every penny will help more people with the condition feel supported and confident in meeting the challenges of eating gluten-free food in every meal for the rest of their lives.
12-year old Emily, pictured above, was diagnosed with coeliac disease when she was just 5 years old and is calling on others to join her in fundraising so Coeliac UK can help children like her.
“For a long time my stomach was very painful and nobody could tell me why. Then my doctor sent me for tests which showed that I had coeliac disease. I ran the Edinburgh Marathon Festival Kids 2K Fun Run in 2015 and 2016 to help raise funds for the local Coeliac UK support group. I really enjoyed taking part and I’m doing it all again in 2017! Please join me in the Kids Fun Run, and help raise funds for Coeliac UK.”
