Every Step Makes an Impact.

Funds raised ensure that children and adults with celiac disease throughout Canada are supported by programs and services. The Canadian Celiac Association (CCA) is Canada’s largest national charitable funder of celiac disease and gluten disorder research. We provide access to free, evidence-based education to help Canadians confirm their diagnosis and support their journey to live longer, healthier lives.

Run your first race fully supported by a team, with the confidence of knowing that every dollar you raise goes to work on providing programs and services that support Canadians with celiac disease and gluten-related disorders.

Learn about Impact




Walk or run individually or as a team. We all have a reason to participate.

You don’t have to be an athlete to join. Anyone in the world can participate and support the CCA. Challenge your friends and family members or create a virtual relay team. Once you register you’ll receive tips and tricks from us to help you get fit and have fun. We’ll be there to support you every step of the way.

Not sure about fundraising? This year we’re aiming to be the biggest team. By signing up and donating $50, you can help us unlock additional prize funding. If you do want to fundraise, we’ll be there to support you with fundraising tips and templates to help you achieve your fundraising goal.
