Cleveland NEDA Walk: Walk alongside TEP in the fight against eating disorders
The Emily Program-Cleveland staff at the 2014 NEDA Walk
In this country, it's estimated that 30 million men and women will suffer from a clinically significant eating disorder during their lifetime.
Join The Emily Program in the fight against eating disorders and saving lives. On Saturday, Oct. 10, members of TEP will walk in the Cleveland NEDA (National Eating Disorders Association) Walk to raise funds and awareness about the dangers of eating disorders, and the importance of early intervention and treatment.
Registration begins at 9 a.m., with an opening ceremony at 10 a.m., followed by the walk, which goes until noon.
NEDA walks have become one of the primary ways of gaining visibility for eating disorders nationwide. Started in the spring of 2009, NEDA Walks have grown to more than 65 walks across the nation each year, raising $3 million-plus since its inception to support individuals and families affected by eating disorders.
We hope to surpass this year's fundraising goal of $10,000. Your contributions help NEDA continue to build on critical programs and services, such as National Eating Disorders Awareness Week, a National Toll-Free Helpline, Toolkits for Parents and more.
We encourage everyone to participate if they are able and medically cleared to do so, or donate to those participants who are walking. We hope there will be a large and enthusiastic turnout for this very important event. See you on Saturday!
