CDF Team Gluten-Free members are not allowed to use the Celiac Disease Foundation logo on their materials. Celiac Disease Foundation holds several large-scale events each year that are organized by CDF staff, and does not want the public to perceive that CDF Team Gluten-Free events or product sales are Foundation-sponsored. By using the CDF Team Gluten-Free logo instead of the Celiac Disease Foundation logo, it is clear that the member is a part of CDF Team Gluten-Free, supporting the Foundation, but that the event is not a Foundation-sponsored event.
CDF Team Gluten-Free™ is Celiac Disease Foundation’s grassroots fundraising program. CDF Team Gluten-Free members participate in athletic events from marathons to golf tournaments, and use their passion and talents to create unique fundraisers like movie nights, foosball tournaments, pub crawls, mitzvah projects, wedding favors, and even virtual walks! Monies raised by CDF Team Gluten-Free members support CDF’s advocacy, education and research programs.

Celiac disease is a genetic autoimmune disorder in which people cannot eat gluten because it damages their small intestine. It is estimated to affect 1 in 100 people worldwide. The United States has one of the worst diagnosis rates for developed nations. 2.5 million Americans are undiagnosed and are at risk for long-term health complications.
When people with celiac disease eat gluten (a protein found in wheat, rye and barley), their body’s immune system responds by creating antibodies that attack the small intestine. These antibodies damage the villi, small fingerlike projections that line the small intestine, so that nutrients cannot be absorbed into the body.
Celiac disease is hereditary, meaning that it runs in families. 1 in 10 people with a first-degree relative with celiac disease (parent, child, sibling) have celiac disease.
