On Sunday, April 15th, 2012, members of the UNC Eating Disorders Program supported the second annual National Eating Disorder Association (NEDA) Walk in downtown Raleigh. Our program’s team members raised over $700 to donate towards NEDA’s fundraising goal!
Teams from Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill gathered in support of the cause, and local clinics and nutrition programs advertised their services to walk participants. Before the start of the walk, one brave young woman stood in front of the crowd and described her struggle with an eating disorder. Her determination to improve and her excitement for the event set the tone for an afternoon of support, friendship, and fun.
If you are interested in joining our team next April, please check back for more details as the event approaches. If you are interested in donating to NEDA, please visit the following site: NEDA Donations.
