Bringing awareness to celiac disease is something that you can do all year… but it seems to be especially exceptional to do so during Celiac Awareness month! Celiac Awareness month is celebrated during the month of May… while a lot of people don’t know about it, it is becoming increasingly popular now that celiac disease is being talked about more. There are some great things that you can do to participate in the happenings around Celiac Awareness month. Here are some ideas.
Celebrating Celiac Awareness Month with 3 Ideas
You can volunteer or participate in a Celiac Awareness Run or Walk: There are walks that are put on by the Center for Celiac Research across the country. The cities & states that currently have walks that are already organized are: Baltimore, MD, Buffalo, NY, Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN, Newark, OH, Rochester, NY, Syracuse, NY, and Tri-County, MI. These walks range from the months of April through May. But if you don’t see anywhere that is located near you, then you can always start a Celiac Awareness walk in your area.

You can get together with a group of friends and have a pitch in dinner party. Everyone that comes has to bring a gluten free pasta dish along with other gluten free foods that you all can enjoy together. This not only celebrates Celiac Awareness month but it also lets people see that there are great dishes that can be enjoyed all while maintaining a gluten free diet.

Participate in the Gluten-Free Challenge and Encourage Friends and Family Members to do so: The Gluten-Free Challenge is where you take one weekend in the month and eat only food that is gluten free. It’s a great idea if you’re taking on the challenge to invite friends and family members to do the same… the more the merrier! If you participate you sign up online, and doing this shows that you are going to do it and you will also be able to participate in drawings that are done for free products and giveaways. And when you make it through the weekend eating only gluten free foods you’ll receive a certificate of completion! You will also begin to receive a newsletter, tips, recipes and other great opportunities.
