NEDA Walk in Williamsburg

People from all over Virginia will join the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) on it's 1st annual NEDA Walk to end eating disorders on October 30, 2010. They will join thousands of walkers in cities throughout the country to raise awareness and much needed funding to provide programs and services to individuals and families affected by eating disorders.

The NEDA Walk in Williamsburg will take place on October 30, 2010 on the campus of the College of William and Mary. To find out how to register, sponsor this walk, or donate to NEDA, visit http://neda.nationaleatingdisorders.org/WilliamsburgWalk

Nearly 10 million women and 1 million men suffer from anorexia and bulimia; many million more from binge eating disorder. In the United States, eating disorders are more common than Alzheimer's disease. Despite its prevalence, there is inadequate access to quality treatment, insurance converge, and research fundings for eating disorders. NEDA's education, awareness and advocacy programs serve an invaluable purpose to those who need them. So lace up your shoes and come walk with us!
