Join the Coeliac Day
May 16-22, 2022
AOECS is together with the national coeliac societies around Europe arranging Coeliac Day Virtual Run.
It is a pan-European online exercise event which you can join from May 16th until May 22nd. We do this to mark the International Coeliac Day and, this year also to help fellow coeliacs in Ukraine.Register here
How does it work?
Don’t worry, it doesn’t have to be hard and sweaty work. It’s easy, healthy and fun. You just register for the race using the link below, pay the participation fee of 10€ and you are on! If you live in a country that does not have Euro as currency you pay with your credit card in the currency of your country equivalent to 10€.
After that, you can choose to walk, run or cycle a distance of 3 or 10 kilometers wherever you want between May 16th – 22nd. You then register your time using the same link as you used when registering for the event.
If you want, you can compare your results with other participants on the race webpage.Register here
Why are we doing this event?
By registering to this event and paying the entrace fee you will support the AOECS Emergency Fund for coeliacs in Ukraine. You also support the national coeliac society in your country to collect funds for their work.
Thanks to the money donated to the AOECS Emergency Fund so far we have been able to ship food to over 1 500 families with coeliac disease inside Ukraine. But the situation continue to get worse every day, therefore, we need more donations.
