Celiac Disease Foundation NYC 2017

THE STORY:

On February 17th, two days after our son Murphy's 9th birthday, we got the call with the results of an EGD that came back positive for Celiac Disease. This wasn't even on our radar, so we immediately went into research mode. We immedatiately began researching the diagnosis - what it means, how it can affect the rest of his life, etc. I also began researching how to offer support in my own way - by searching for any athletic event teams (running, triathlon, etc) that support Celiac research and fundraising. Both paths led us to the Celiac Disease Foundation.

It was then that I discovered Team Gluten-Free. I had been toying around with the idea of running the New York City Marathon, but knew I would need a charity entry if I was going to participate this year. Our recent diagnosis, along with the discovery of Team Gluten-Free made the decision easy. I wanted to support Team Gluten-Free, the Celiac Disease Foundation and all of the hard work they put into making life easier for people with Celiac Disease. I'm looking forward to running in NYC, what our family has now nicknamed "Murphy's Marathon."

There will be times when it's tough and we are challenged. But much like in a marathon, we will continue to fight, never ceasing in our forward progress. I'm thankful for the opportunity to be a part of Team Gluten-Free, bring awareness and raise funds for the Celiac Disease Foundation!
