Recap: Gluten Free Raleigh Run/Walk Fundraiser

A huge, huge THANK YOU to everyone that participated, helped or donated funds to the 1st ever Gluten Free Raleigh Run/Walk Fundraiser held this past Saturday, 6/13.

I am proud to announce that the fundraiser collected $915 and that 100% of that is being donated to the Gluten Intolerance Group to fund Gluten Free Week at Camp Kanata in Wake Forest, NC. This year's camp runs from June 21 - 27. I have received word that the following local companies are helping out with the camp in addition to the money raised by Gluten Free Raleigh - thanks to you guys for your support.
  • Bella Monica Flatbread Company will be donating Gluten Free Pizzas - thanks Trevor
  • Rosie's Plate will be donating Gluten Free cookies - thanks Rose
  • Twin Cakes Bakery will be donating various Gluten Free baked goods - thanks Michelle and Lori
  • Jules Shepard of Jules Gluten Free will be donating Gluten Free graham cracker mixes so the kids can enjoy s'mores - thanks Jules.
  • Gluten Free Raleigh will also be donating Gluten Free wristbands (like Live Strong) and plans on coming up to camp to meet the kids and volunteers.

Great Job Zach and GF team! To note we also receive a wonderful donation from Lee Tobin at the Whole Foods Bake House as well as some local grocery stores such as Kroger, Harris Teeter and Trader Joes. There are numerous other GF companies that are sending us the much needed gluten free products and ingredients to provide a week of gluten free foods. Looking forward to camp! Thank you for your donations!
