Oh my goodness, I have decided to do this thing and it seems beyond crazy! Why would I do such a ridiculous thing?
Without Coeliac UK I'd have been thoroughly stumped when I was diagnosed with Coeliac Disease. For "coeliacs" Coeliac UK provides a first port of call for newly diagnosed (and most likely panicking) coeliacs as they are full of useful advice and support. From there, their support continues as they campaign to raise awareness of the disease and provide funding for research into the disease.
Personally I've been so very grateful for their support and I am very happy to do my bit to raise awareness of coeliac disease by running for Coeliac UK. If it means that just one more person thinks that it's worth getting tested as a result then that would be fantastic.
