Wilmington NC NEDA Walk

20140715-145109-53469509.jpg

As everyone knows, I recently took over as Chapter Leader/President for the NC Chapter of Project HEAL! It is a nonprofit organization that raises funds for people to receive eating disorder treatment (as these costs can be as much as $30,000/month).

One of our large events for this year is a NEDA (National Eating Disorder Association) Walk hosted by Project HEAL NC!

There are currently over 30 million Americans who struggle with eating disorders, and this number has been growing over the past two decades. In spite of this, eating disorder research continues to be under-funded, insurance coverage for treatment is inadequate and societal pressures to be thin remain rampant.

We need your support in our participation in the Wilmington, NC NEDA Walk. You can donate to our participation in the walk by clicking http://www.nedawalk.org/wilmingtonnc2014, and clicking ‘Donate‘.

Your participation and support goes a long way!

$30 provides 30 minutes on the NEDA Helpline.
$50 provides 20 CD-ROMs of NEDA Toolkits to parents, teachers, coaches and volunteers.
$100 pays for the tools required for a NEDA Navigator as they provide support to individuals and families affected.
$250 pays for a full day of operation of the Proud2BMe.org teen website, which promotes confidence in teens across America.
Every dollar helps towards our goal of a world without eating disorders!

Here’s the awesome thing…since Project HEAL is hosting this event, we will receive a good portion of the funds which will then be added to our scholarship fund for someone to receive the life-saving treatment they need.

You can also register to walk with me on the Wilmington, NC NEDA Walk website at http://www.nedawalk.org/wilmingtonnc2014.

Thank you for your time and support.
