THE STORY:

Hello, Friends -- when my friend Tori Bergstein (a high school senior in Vermont and the daughter of one of my morning running buddies) asked me to join her "Spin for Celiac" team to raise money for Celiac Disease research by hopping on a spin bike on September 17th and pedaling for this important cause, I immediately said "yes!" because Tori's story is compelling. I hope you'll take a moment to read it and that you'll consider making a contribution today! Thank you! 


Tori's story

Why I created Spin For Celiac:

My sister, Rachel, was diagnosed with Celiac Disease when she was 5 years old, and has lived with the disease for 9 years. She's not the only one; in the United States, as many as 3 million people have Celiac Disease, and as high as 80% of that number remain undiagnosed. This autoimmune disease means your body reacts to gluten like poison and there are severe long-term health issues as a result. Rachel is one of the most special people in my life, so when I came up with the idea for my Grad Challenge, I wanted to connect my love for my sister, with my pride in my community's amazing array of gluten-free products, as well as my interest in a career in medicine. All proceeds from Spin for Celiac go directly to the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University, where pioneering, world-renowned research on Celiac Disease is spearheaded.
