NFCA Athlete for Awareness Peter Bronski has begun training for the Virgil Crest 50-Miler, a daunting race that takes place in September each year. For him, it’s also the 3rd Annual Gluten-Free Challenge – a personal feat and fundraiser for NFCA.

Over the past two years, Peter has raised more than $6,500 for NFCA as he prepared to run 50 miles and scale 10,000 feet in the grueling race. As he puts it, “That's basically the equivalent of running back-to-back marathons, off-road, while climbing to the top of the Empire State Building 8 times.” Not easy.

Peter has set a goal to raise at least $5,000 this year, which would put his 3-year total over the $10,000 mark he’s determined to surpass.

This year, he’s even offering an incentive for donations. Anyone who donates at least $20 to his fundraising page will be automatically entered to win a book giveaway. The titles up for grabs include Peter’s popular cookbooks, Artisanal Gluten-Free Cooking, 2nd Edition (this revised and expanded version will be released in June) and Artisanal Gluten-Free Cupcakes, and his newest book, The Gluten-Free Edge: A Nutrition and Training Guide for Peak Athletic Performance and an Active Gluten-Free Life, which will also be released in June.
