Thank You to EDN of Maryland

This past Sunday I had the humbling privilege to speak at the 2nd Annual EDN of Maryland Walkathon, "Be Beautiful...Be YOU! ~ Walking to promote positive body image for everyBODY!"
It was my 2nd time presenting at the EDN Walkathon and I was grateful for the opportunity to inspire hope and encourage advocacy in those affected by eating disorders. I was also thrilled to spend the morning connecting with other ED activists (and their dogs ;-)!
Pictures from the Walkathon can be found on EDN of Maryland's Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/EDN-of-Maryland/113984794238

The EDC welcomes opportunities to connect with eating disorder organizations in our efforts to advance the federal recognition of eating disorders as a public health priority; thank you to Sharon Peterson for making this possible via the Walkathon. ~ I hope to see some of yesterday's participants at our EDC National Lobby Day next Tuesday, October 4th!

Thank you for the gift of meeting each of you, and thank you for seeking freedom from the grips of an eating disorder, especially those family members who are helping their loved ones seek freedom. Remember to believe in the hope for life and health restored after the recovery-process.

with care, Kathleen
