The Eating Disorder Coalition of Iowa (EDCI) is proud to host an awareness fundraiser with a focus on purposeful rest. We are turning the traditional “awareness walk” on its head with a team-based event we call Eating Disorder Awareness (Not a) Walk Fundraiser or #notawalk for short. We hope you join us in spreading our message of combating exercise shame with compassion during this year's Awareness Week!

Please check out our event page: https://givebutter.com/notawalk

To get started, we encourage you to donate to an existing team, join a team or start your own team. To simply donate, click the "Donate" button at the top of the screen. To join in on the fun, join a team or create your own team by hitting "Fundraise" button above. Then share this page (and our message) far and wide. Let your friends, family, co-workers, gym buddies, and your social circles know they can also participate.

The fundraiser will run through the end of of Eating Disorder Awareness Week (February 22nd - February 28th). February 28th will be our "event" day in which we encourage all team members to participate in a period of purposeful rest. Get in your cozy clothes, find a comfy spot, put your feet up, and give yourself permission to honor your body by giving it some well-deserved rest!

Be sure to take a picture or selfie of yourself resting and tag us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or email us at [email protected] to have your photos featured on our website!
