Hey Gluten-Free Brewers,
In late September I'm racing in the Virgil Crest Ultra in upstate New York. It's an ultra-distance trail running race that covers 50 miles and climbs a cumulative 10,000 vertical feet. (Roughly the equivalent of running back-to-back offroad marathons while climbing to the top of the Empire State Building 8.5 times.) I'm doing the race as a fundraiser for the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness.
Unlike some of you gents, who brew GF for your wives or girlfriends (I commend each and every one of you for supporting your other half!), I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in 2007. On a gluten-free diet, I'm perfectly healthy. But millions of Americans are undiagnosed, and as such, face serious and potentially fatal health consequences as a result. That's where the NFCA comes in.
Please check out my fundraising page:
And consider making a donation. Thanks for your support!
