We were at the “Celiac Awareness Day” Flashmob

Author: Celiac But Happy

This week was hectic at work so until today I was not able to tell you that we participated in the flashmob organized by FACE last week end to celebrate Celiac Awareness Day.

It was really fun. Initially we were afraid only a few people would show up but when we got to the meeting point at Plaza Callao there was a fairly big crowd. People of all ages and the “FACE Joven” team were there ready to have some fun.


We followed everything our MP3 players were telling us to do: jump, baguette fighting, inflate balloons… Well, actually there was a little lack of synchronicity but that made it even more fun. Bystanders were astonished watching such a rare activity on a Saturday morning. I’ve been told we were on Telecinco T.V. news :-)

I specially liked a balloon that had the message “No soy celíaco pero los apoyo” (I’m not celiac but I support them).

Some of the "FACE Joven" guys and a couple more people who joined them for the picture…including myself :-)

The event was a pretty cool way to draw some attention about the celiac disease.
