BENEFITING: CELIAC DISEASE FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Nov 02, 2014
The 2014 TCS New York City Marathon will take place on Sunday, November 2, 2014. Celiac Disease Foundation has partnered with TCS to raise awareness of celiac disease and other gluten-related disorders. For the past 25 years, CDF has driven early diagnosis and treatment of celiac disease through education, advocacy and advancing research to improve the quality of life for all people affected by gluten-related disorders.
Celiac Disease Foundation brought together scientists and physicians to create today's celiac disease blood test panel, lobbied NIH and CDC to recognize celiac disease as one of the world's most prevalent genetic autoimmune disorders, lobbied the FDA for today's gluten-free labeling rule, and partnered with mainstream manufacturers to create today's multi-billion dollar gluten-free marketplace. CDF looks to the future to assure that all people with celiac disease and other gluten-related disorders are diagnosed and treated, and one day, cured.
