Proud to Be Gluten-Free Fun Walk and Pancake Breakfast

I'd like to share this awesome event with you. I am so excited to announce my gluten-free support group's first ever Proud to Be Gluten-Free Fun Walk and Pancake Breakfast. This is truly a "fun walk." You don't even have to walk to participate. It's about getting together and showing our gluten-free pride and raising awareness of gluten sensitivity. We are reaching out to the press so we hope to have a big crowd and media coverage. Please share the info with anyone you think may be interested. I would love to see you there. We need lots of volunteers. Please note that you have to register on the Web site for this event. RSVPing here on MEETUP is not enough. You will not end up getting your t-shirt and other goodies.

    We cannot stay to walk but would love to come with a donation and to get breakfast. Is that all right?

      Hi Monique, That is fine. If you want a shirt, you'll have to register online. If you just want to come and eat and enjoy some time at the event, you can bring your donation then.
