In the United States, 30 million men and women will suffer from a clinically significant eating disorder during their lifetime. NEDA Walks help raise awareness and funds in the fight against eating disorders. Started in the spring of 2009, NEDA Walks have grown to over 65 walks across the nation each year, raising over $3 million dollars for the cause since their inception! By participating in and donating to a NEDA Walk, you are helping to raise awareness about the dangers surrounding eating disorders and the need for early intervention and treatment. By getting involved in a NEDA Walk, you are saving lives.
It’s never too early to register for your local NEDA Walk! NEDA Walks are taking place all across the country this year, from New York to Los Angeles. NEDA encourages you to register for a walk near you as soon as possible. The earlier you register for a NEDA Walk, the more time you have to get your friends and family to register and fundraise. In turn, those people that you get to register will also spread the word and fundraise – so think of it as a multiplier effect, one that supports the cause! Learn more.
Walks educate and bring together communities, but they also raise vital funds to support NEDA's programs and services. There are many different fundraising strategies you may employ to have a successful fundraising campaign, and NEDA suggests you use all of them! Learn more.
