Inaugural Terre Haute NEDA Walk set for Oct. 19

The National Eating Disorders Association is waging a battle against eating disorders and unrealistic “body perfect” ideals.

To raise funds, spread awareness about the seriousness of eating disorders and support the local community, NEDA is staging its inaugural Terre Haute NEDA Walk, themed “NEDA Walk. Save a Life,”  at 11 a.m. Oct. 19 at 530 N. Fifth St. on the Indiana State University campus. Registration/check-in begins at 10.

Fees are $25 per adult, $15 per student, $10 per child under 12, $5 per pet. Funds from the walk will be used to support NEDA’s education and advocacy programs.

To advance register, visit www.nedawalk.org/terrehaute2013 or call 212-575-6200.

For more information, contact Melissa Grinslade at melissa.grinslade@indstate.edu.

In the United States, 20 million women and 10 million men suffer from a clinically significant eating disorder at some time in their life, including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder, or an eating disorder not otherwise specified (EDNOS). Anorexia nervosa has the highest fatality rate of any mental illness.

Headquartered in New York City, NEDA is the leading U.S. non-profit organization supporting individuals and families affected by eating disorders. NEDA serves as a catalyst for prevention, cures and access to quality care. Each year, NEDA helps millions of people across the country find information and appropriate treatment resources through its toll-free, live helpline, its many outreach programs and website. NEDA advocates for advancements in the field and envisions a world without eating disorders.

For treatment referrals, visit www.MyNEDA.org or contact NEDA’s Live Helpline at 800-931-2237 from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday.
