GF FOOD FAIR & WALK - MAY 5th

Gluten Free Food Fair & 1- or 3-mile Walk
Saturday, May 5, 2007

This event is being organized by the Portland Metro, McMinnville and Mid Willamette Valley GIG groups and will include our third annual charity walk. We will walk and then enjoy free samples of delicious gluten free food. It is open to the general public.

It is estimated that, for each person diagnosed with gluten intolerance, celiac disease and dermatitis herpetiformis, 90 are undiagnosed and suffering; the average time it takes to diagnose celiac disease from the onset of symptoms is ten years. However, most physicians still believe that this is a rare disorder and claim to have no patients with such problems. Help GIG support those affected by these diseases with support, education and resources.

Venue: All Saints Catholic Church
3847 N.E. Glisan St., Portland, Or. 97232
