Jack Resin Basket Tournament
May 29, 2017 at 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
As many of you know, I held a basketball tournament last year, and it was a huge success. This year, I am hosting a basketball tournament for a new cause. Around a year and a half ago, I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease, which is genetic autoimmune disorder affecting 1 in 100 people worldwide. People with Celiac cannot eat gluten (found in wheat, rye and barley) because it damages their small intestine, making it impossible for them to absorb nutrients. There is no known cure for Celiac disease, and undetected it can lead to a number of life-threatening health complications. Currently, the ONLY treatment available for Celiac disease sufferers is to follow a strict gluten-free diet. Unfortunately that brought my search for great pizza to a halt. The Celiac Foundation provides critical funding for programs of advocacy, education and advancing research. To help me and millions of others whose lives are impacted by this disease, I am asking you to join me at the Shalhevet High School gym on Memorial Day to support this cause by participating in another epic basketball tournament! With your help, I hope to one day continue my pizza quest, be able to enjoy eating out with friends and family again without worry and be free from disease.
Monday May 29th from 1-4PM
Shalhevet High School Gym
910 S Fairfax Ave, Los Angeles
Registration fee to participate is suggested at $36 and open to all Middle School aged kids. To sign up please contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
You don’t have to come or participate to support me in my efforts! Donations to the Celiac Foundation can also be made on this site. Please help me achieve my goal!
I hope to see you next Monday afternoon, May 29!
