TEAM GLUTENFREE GOES EAST! Lately I've met a bunch of celiac and celiac-friendly women who love to run. One of them is Colleen Farrell, who is helping to organize a fundraiser scheduled for June 11, 2006 in beautiful Lake Placid, New York. The event as planned will involve a marathon, half-marathon, and four-person relay. It is affiliated with Team GlutenFree, which combines sports and fundraising to support celiac research, awareness programs, and camp scholarships. TeamGlutenFree has mainly been active in the West, so this event is relatively convenient for those of us on the Atlantic side of the continent.

The event is also not very far from Irises Cafe and Wine Bar, a GFRAP restaurant in Plattsburgh. Here's the restaurant's gluten-free menu.
