Announcing 'The Fearless Challenge'

Leave those diet ads in the dust and face your fears this New Year! We’re making it possible to channel your inner champion, face your fears, and raise some money to support NEDA’s life-changing programs and services.

Join The Fearless Challenge, a NEDA initiative in which we call upon participants to choose a fear and an activity to overcome that fear.

Is there that one thing you have always wanted to do but something has been holding you back? Maybe it's facing your fear of heights, singing in front of a crowd, skydiving, or something as simple as posting an unedited selfie. Whatever that one thing is, now is your chance!

Throughout the month of January, ask friends, acquaintances, and loved ones to support you and your fundraising goal by donating money to your fundraising page.

By raising funds to support those affected by eating disorders and building a culture of courage, we'll be sending the message that recovery is real and anything is possible in the New Year! 

Get started today:

1. Follow this "Get Started" link to register.  

2. Set a fundraising goal.

3. Take to social media; share your fear, your donation link, and why this is important to you! Remember to use #FundMyFearless with every post. 

4. Challenge a friend to do the same!
