“My 9 year old daughter Ava was diagnosed with coeliac disease in 2022 after a lifetime of bowel issues. I will be running the London Marathon to show her that something positive has come from her diagnosis and to raise awareness on how living with coeliac disease can affect people’s lives. I want to give something back to Coeliac UK after they helped Ava to understand her condition when she was first diagnosed” 
Hannah Standage 

If there is another event that you would like to take part in, please contact us at We would be delighted to help you take on your own challenge to raise funds for Coeliac UK.

Do you have charity places in the London Marathon? How do I get a place?
