About Step Beyond Celiac
Since our inaugural Step Beyond Celiac 5K in 2017 our focus has been our community.
The successes of our Step Beyond Celiac 5K can be attributed to outstanding volunteer and participant contributions of energy, enthusiasm, and effort. These events would not be possible without the support of people like YOU and your friends and families! From the bottom of our gluten free hearts, we THANK YOU!
We are committed to creating awareness for and supporting those with celiac disease and/or gluten sensitivities at every stage of life. We’ve had a lot of fun at our SBC5Ks and made some wonderful friends along the way, all while raising much needed funds to support our vision.
Connecting with other people affected by celiac disease and learning what you have in common or how your experiences may be different is a sure fire way to keep making steps towards a cure. Go Beyond Celiac provides you with the ability to share what life has been like before, during, and after your diagnosis.
About Beyond Celiac
For more than 15 years, Beyond Celiac has been the leading patient advocacy and research-driven celiac disease organization working to drive diagnosis, advance research, and accelerate the discovery of new treatments and a cure. Since our creation, we have strived to reach as many people as possible with evidence-based information that helps our community maximize their health and help raise awareness.
Over the years, despite the rise of the gluten-free diet fad, it became apparent that a strict gluten-free diet is burdensome and not completely effective for those that need it. Therefore, Beyond Celiac pivoted to include accelerating research as core to its mission. By engaging with the top scientists in the field, awarding research grants, and supporting the community, Beyond Celiac envisions a world in which people with celiac disease can live healthy lives and eat without fear—a world Beyond Celiac.
Proceeds raised with Step Beyond Celiac support our work to accelerate treatments and a cure for celiac disease. We have a plan and a specific strategy for forging the pathways to a cure. Until we reach our goal, we’ll be putting our energy into helping people with celiac disease live better, longer.
