Join Coeliac UK to complete a 1500km journey around the UK

Many of Coeliac Uk’s events, which so many of you support, have been cancelled or postponed in 2020, which means a loss of 75% of their fundraising income, and they need this income to save their future and your help could make all the difference. So join Coeliac UK to complete a 1500km journey around the UK to help raise much-needed funds.

Coeliac UK

Take part in the Coeliac UK Challenge, on 19 and 20 September.

Choose an activity you love – it could be walking, running, cycling, swimming, rowing (anything goes!) – pledge a distance, and fundraise if you can. Then on 19 or 20 September, complete your pledged distance. Throughout the weekend, Coeliac UK will be adding up the total distance to see if you have travelled the distance around the UK!

Together we can do it! You can help the gluten-free community achieve something great, while raising vital funds so Coeliac UK can continue supporting you and your loved ones to live well, gluten free.

Anyone can get involved, whether you want to set a fitness goal, or are simply looking for new ways to get moving. Create a contest between your friends, or do your challenge together with the family – the weekend is what you make it and we can’t wait for you to join us!
