Pioneer programs raise awareness and funds

Participate in an event or create your own

The University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center is completely funded by donations. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and appreciate your support.

The Celiac Disease Center is well known for some of the best programs for celiac disease in the country, including:

Annual Celiac Skate fundraiser

In February each year, an ice-skating fundraiser is held in a Chicago suburb. The event spreads awareness and raises vital funds for research and programs.

In 2011, the event raised more than $50,000 to support our work. If you are interested in participating in this event in the future or creating an event like this in your area, please contact us at 773-702-7593.

Do-it-yourself fundraising

Signing up for an organized event is just one way for you to support The Celiac Disease Center. Starting your own event is another. You can walk, run, swim, bike, jump rope, or do any other activity that interests you to raise funds for celiac disease education, research, and advocacy.

If you are interested in do-it-yourself fundraising, call The Celiac Disease Center at 773-702-7593 or send us an email. We’ll be happy to help you get started.
