Coeliac UK helped me get a diagnosis and then gave me invaluable support as I made the transition to the gluten free diet. I had never felt better so decided to run the marathon and raise vital funds for Coeliac UK as my way of saying thank you. The support from the crowd was unreal and the atmosphere was incredible – I had an amazing experience! Katie-Anne
