Want to help raise Celiac Disease education and awareness?

The Kicking 4 Celiac Foundation Student Ambassador program was designed to help children, teens, and adults become pivotal role models for others with Celiac Disease and to educate those in the community that may not be affected by Celiac Disease.

Our Student Ambassador Program works with students interested in reaching out to their local elementary, middle, and high schools, as well as to those in college, to discuss the importance of allergy awareness and tolerance in schools. With the rate of diagnosis increasing, it is important for education to increase well. The Kicking 4 Celiac Foundation will provide Student Ambassadors with literature, to help them raise Celiac Disease education and awareness.

Anyone interested in being an ambassador should email Foundation director Craig Pinto at
